Complicated Kindness Summary


Complicated Kindness by Miriam Toews

Nomi Nickel lives with her father, Ray, in East Village, a small Mennonite town in Manitoba. She dreams of escaping to the big city, but since her mother and sister left home, it's hard to imagine leaving her father behind. As she begins to piece together the story behind her mother's disappearance, she finds herself on a direct collision course with the town's minister. With fierce originality and brilliance, Miriam Toews takes us straight to the centre of Nomi's world and the complicated kindness at the heart of family life.

Complicated Kindness Reviews


"'A Complicated Kindness is a delight from beginning to end. The humour might be of the blackest sort, but the cumulative effect is liberating and defiantly joyful.' Daily Mail; 'Told with the slouchy, cool grace of a misfit teen, this sparkly novel is destined to become a coming-of-age classic.' Elle; 'Wry and saturated with comic invention, A Complicated Kindness possesses one of the strongest fictional voices since Holden Caulfield vented his spleen' Time Out"
