(From the publisher):
A coming-of-age novel set in a Montreal in which immigrant youth totter on the edge of self-destruction and oblivion, in the face of brutal and racist police, an insensitive education system, and few prospects for the future. Thomas's language is spare, and his crackling dialogue and use of patois can compare with the best in Caribbean literature.
