About the Author

Marina Endicott's novel Good to a Fault won the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best Book, Canada and the Caribbean, and was a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize. Her next, The Little Shadows, was short-listed for the Governor General's Award and long-listed for the Giller Prize, as was her last book, Close to Hugh. Endicott lives in Alberta most of the time.

Reviews

Endicott depicts her characters with great delicacy and sympathy...There is so much in this book to linger over, from Kay and Thea's relationship with each other to the strength and autonomy of Kay's mind to Endicott's lyrical descriptions of the sea and the ship. It's a novel to return to again and again...A quiet, elegant triumph.
A beautiful book. It's so lovely in its graveness, and in its comedy...The cut of the prose is so keen and the happenings are so finely wrought that it contorts where it can't help but contort, around the places where unanswerable grief comes into our lives.--Helen Oyeyemi, author of Gingerbread
An immersive reading experience, the kind that makes one think, and think again...How movingly the novel considers the otherness between people, between the world and us, between human and all other life. Its boldness has a deep humility. Marina Endicott allows her characters to exist without being afraid of their (and our) moral dilemmas and failures, or the gap between our intentions and our understanding. She writes about goodness so well--so beautifully and joyfully. I feel as if I could close my eyes and still be at sea with these characters. A wonderful, brilliant book.--Madeline Thien, author of Do Not Say We Have Nothing
