Reviews

Praise for Summer of My Amazing Luck

A picaresque account of two welfare moms having loopy adventures and getting by in the city . . . The novel's voice [is] amused, warm, curious, alive on the page. --Alexandra Schwartz, The New Yorker

A comic take on what initially appears a most improbable topic for humour . . . it works. --The Globe and Mail

Toews, author of A Complicated Kindness (2004), offers a mellow summer interlude that allows readers to revel in the not-so-simple pleasures of small-town life, and consider what matters most. --Danise Hoover, Booklist

The novel offers a humorous look at the absurdities of the Canadian welfare system while unwinding the intricacies of a sticky-sweet friendship. --Publishers Weekly
