A Boy of Good Breeding by Miriam Toews

A Boy of Good Breeding

Miriam Toews

A witty story full of likeable characters set in Canada's smallest town. I especially warmed to shy Mayor Funk who struggles with both his personal life and the seemingly ever increasing local population. An entertaining and enjoyable read.

Hosea wanted to relax, to savour the early morning calm, to stretch out in bed, enjoy his nakedness, and happily welcome the new day. A small part of him wished his mornings resembled those in the orange juice commercials where healthy clean families bustle around making lunches and checking busy schedules, kissing and hugging and wishing each other well. But he was alone. And he hated orange juice. It stung his throat.
