Behind the Face of Winter
H Nigel Thomas
coming-of-age novel set in a Montreal in which immigrant
youth totter on the edge of self-destruction and oblivion,
in the face of brutal and racist police, an insensitive
education system, and few prospects for the future. Thomas’s
language is spare, and his crackling dialogue and use of
patois can compare with the best in Caribbean literature.
“. . . a hard story, sometimes despairingly bleak, but it is also undeniably beautiful . . . worth reading—and rereading . . .”
