Product description

Review

A beautiful, moving book that explores what it takes to belong. (Evie Wyld, Guardian)

A sharp and compassionate exploration of the split nature of decisions. (Sunday Times)

Compassionate and keenly observed ... Celona's well-judged conclusion does indeed fill the heart to bursting. (Daily Mail)

An evocative look into what makes a family, and what makes a home, and how they are undeniably helixed together. (Colum McCann)

A heartfelt first novel ... Celona is compassionate toward even her most wayward characters. (New York Times)

While Shannon is a heartbreaking character, Y is a warming story sprinkled with humour, forming the perfect canvas to interrogate big questions. (Psychologies)

Stunning. (Globe and Mail)

An effervescent debut . . . . A meditation on loss, identity, and family, Y showcases a tenacious young writer as she schools us in compassion. (O Magazine)

Splendid. (Toronto Star)

A wee baby girl is left behind and even before she opens her eyes, she begins to describe her extraordinary world. Y is filled with heartbreaking loss and flawed heroes yet Celona's writing is filled with grace and compassion. (Heather O'Neill, author of Lullabies for Little Criminals)

Book Description

Marjorie Celona's debut, Y, is a heartbreaking and compassionate story of sacrifice and love, which introduces readers to unforgettable characters and a brilliant new literary voice.
