Son of a trickster : a novel
By Eden Robinson
Eden Robinson blends humour with heartbreak in this compelling coming-of-age novel. Jared is only sixteen but feels like he is the one who must stabilize his family’s life, even look out for his elderly neighbours. But he’s puzzled over why his maternal grandmother has never liked him, why she says he’s the son of a trickster, that he isn’t human. Shortlisted for Canada Reads 2020.
