"[This] rich, somber debut plumbs a father-son relationship to meditate on the fictions people create to endure loss...Dumont offers powerful philosophical insight into questions of what people owe one another and the value of subjective belief." --Publishers Weekly "Dumont deftly describes a quiet intimacy...A book that, even despite us, opens the heart...Dumont knows how to guide his reader right to the end." --ActuaLitté "A first novel of remarkable skill and emotion." --Page des libraires "A marvelous, perceptive, and poignant book...Beautifully written." --Lecturama
