Reviews | Quill and QuireNext Year, for Sure Zoey Leigh Peterson Doubleday Canada The narrative style of Next Year, for Sure — told in the present tense with short sentences — is perfect for directly confronting the fraught and provocative ostensible subject matter: polyamory, and the discomfort surrounding it. Son of a Trickster Eden Robinson Knopf Canada Only Eden Robinson could make a reader fall in love with a smart-ass, alcoholic, drug-dealing year-old. Through protagonist Jared and his dysfunctional family, Robinson teaches us about a kind of love outside of the norm of greeting cards and family sitcoms. Son of a Trickster is a ribald narrative, irreverent and surreal and hilarious and messy. In The Patch , Calgary journalist Chris Turner deftly balances all sides — from Canadians who rely on the resource for their livelihoods to Indigenous groups and activists justifiably concerned about the impact of continued extraction on the environment. Her sophomore collection does not disappoint.
