bookshelves: adult-fiction, canadian

I think my favourite part of this book was the narrator, Marcel. Spanning his life from childhood to middle age, you get lots of time to fall in love with this sensitive, mixed-race child with the unusual upbringing. I also loved the setting (1960s England and Vietnam), which is rife with tension and change. The book moved a long at a nice pace and I greatly appreciated Maclear's tone, which was literary but breezy. I knew her as a children's author but was pleased to discover that she is equally comfortable in the sphere of adult fiction. I eagerly await her next novel!
