Annabel by Kathleen Winter: The first novel from the Winterset Award winning author of boYs: a series of linked short stories that examine the male psyche. The setup for Winter's much anticipated novel is as follows: "In 1968, into the beautiful, spare environment of remote coastal Labrador, a mysterious child is born: a baby who appears to be neither fully boy nor girl, but both at once." The publisher describes the book as "Haunting, sweeping in scope, and stylistically reminiscent of Jeffrey Eugenides' Middlesex, Annabel is a compelling debut novel about one person's struggle to discover the truth in a culture that shuns contradiction." (House of Anansi - June)

Thank you! It's a huge relief to have it done. Now I can entertain some new ideas.
