All My Puny Sorrows – Miriam Toews

all_my_puny_sorrows_imageI seem to love sad and funny books.  If you do too, then you must read this book.  It is so very sad, dealing with the repeated attempted suicides of a sister and the imperfections of family relationships.  However, it’s funny too as families and small towns can be quirky and humorous.  Toews’ very skillful writing makes it all feel real.  I think she just might be my favourite author ever as I love and highly recommend her other fiction also, especially A Complicated Kindness and A Boy of Good Breeding.
