About the Author
Eddy Boudel Tan writes stories that uncover how strange and extraordinary life can be, some of which can be found in Joyland, Yolk, Gertrude Press, and the G&LR. His debut novel, After Elias, was released in 2020. Eddy lives in Vancouver.
A propulsive, unpredictable adventure by a master storyteller. Tightly plotted with complex characters, Boudel Tan offers a cinematic second novel about identity, family, terrible secrets, romantic love, and immeasurable loss. Boudel Tan is a rare talent who can deftly weave tenderness and heartbreak with high-seas action and nail-biting drama into a perfectly paced narrative.-- "Lindsay Wong, award-winning author of The Woo-Woo"
The Rebellious Tide is an impassioned meditation on alienation and belonging, power and violence, and the marks mothers and fathers leave upon their children. Sebastien Goh is a nuanced and wholly original protagonist. I will be thinking about him and his journey for a long time to come.-- "Alexis Schaitkin, author of Saint X"
The Rebellious Tide plumbs the depths of what ties us to our parents, and how destiny can -- and sometimes must -- be overcome. With clear and filmic prose, complex characters, and a keen grasp of the emotional and psychological struggles of young adults finding their way in life, Boudel Tan establishes himself as an exciting voice in Canadian literary fiction.-- "Natalie Jenner, author of The Jane Austen Society"
What I love about Eddy Boudel Tan's writing is his willingness to explore complicated lives and complex hearts. A perfect blend of mystery, family secrets, and romance, The Rebellious Tide is an ambitious and layered novel that pulls you under its wave in the best possible way.-- "Brian Francis, author of Natural Order and Fruit"
Sexual and cultural identities are explored in a novel that doesn't close its eyes to the darkness, even as it celebrates a world that is vast and filled with adventure.-- "Quill & Quire"
Boudel Tan is a whiz at pacing, a natural at breakneck plot, and satisfying backstory, and adept at managing handfuls of characters ... Interweaving frivolity and politics -- along with romance, strife, one-liners, and assorted heist-caper schemes -- Boudel Tan delivers a story that's enticing and smile-inducing.-- "Vancouver Sun"
Eddy Boudel Tan is a rising star in CanLit.-- "Winnipeg Free Press"
A tautly written, thoroughly compelling saga of identity and survival, The Rebellious Tide will keep the reader hooked to the very last page.-- "Midwest Book Review"

The Rebellious Tide is littered -- in the best possible way -- with complexity and intrigue, delving into the significance of sounds, the strengths and struggles of anger, and the challenges of forming an individual identity among conformists.

-- "Ormsby Review"
Tan's latest is an exhilarating and immersive novel filled with adventure, suspense and, above all, humanity.-- "Xtra"
