Annabel
Annabel
Shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, the Governor General's Award for Fiction, and the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize. In 1968, into the beautiful, spare environment of remote coastal Labrador, a mysterious child is born: a baby who appears to be neither fully boy nor girl, but both at once. Only three people are privy to the secret - the baby's parents, Jacinta and Treadway, and a trusted neighbor, Thomasina. Together the adults make a difficult decision: to raise the child as a boy named Wayne. But as Wayne grows to adulthood within the hyper - masculine hunting culture of his father, his shadow - self - a girl he thinks of as ''Annabel'' - is never entirely extinguished, and indeed is secretly nurtured by the women in his life. Hauntin, sweeping in scope, and stylistically reminiscent of Jeffrey Eugenides' <i>Middlesex, Annabel</i> is a compelling tale about one person's struggle to discover the truth about their birth and self in a culture that shuns contradiction.
