Cordelia Strube

Praise for Strube's previous novels:

"Smart, eccentric prose."--The New York Times

"Strube's comic sense is like a perfectly mixed martini: exceedingly dry and potent."--The Toronto Star

Milo doesn't quite have it together. His acting career has stalled. His girlfriend dumped him. His miserable father has vanished. And Pablo and Wallace--and then Wallace's mother--seem to have moved in to his house. The only person Milo likes is Robertson, the autistic eleven-year-old next door. So when Robertson gets bullied, Milo is finally spurred to action. Milo being Milo, though, even his best intentions go awry, and soon Robertson's dad is in the hospital, Milo's lost in the woods during an acting experiment and Gustaw, his dad, may have returned from the dead via reality TV.

Cordelia Strube's most recent novel Lemon, her eighth, was longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and the Trillium Award.
