Praise for A Boy of Good Breeding

Winner of the McNally Robinson Book of the Year Award

It's hard to read these charming tall tales and not root for the young Miriam Toews. --The New York Times

A Boy of Good Breeding caught me at the throat, made me laugh and weep with sad-sweet joy . . . [The characters] get under your skin, and finally, it seems, into your very blood, where they quicken the heart . . . Tonic for the spirit: a charming, deeply moving, unerringly human story, perfectly shaped and beautifully told. --The Globe and Mail

Reading [Toews] is like climbing into a fizzy bath of lunatic humour . . . Buried in the mysteries of parenthood, love and death are at least a couple of home truths. --Toronto Star

An earnest, sweet-tempered narrative. --Kirkus Reviews

[A] sweet, funny novel full of memorable, picaresque characters and unexpected drama. --Publishers Weekly
