all my puny sorrows by miriam tows

A gorgeous, heart-wrenching, unforgettable read from award-winning Canadian author Miriam Toews, All My Puny Sorrows tells the story of two sisters, Elf and Frieda, living in the aftermath of their Mennonite upbringing and their father's suicide, and the love between them. Ms. Toews' tale masterfully blends dark and funny: just when the heaviness becomes too much, she adds a bit of lightness to keep you turning the pages. A stunningly spot-on portrayal of depression and the aching aftermath of suicide, not to be missed by fans of sad yet funny modern fiction. Click here for a full review.
