Mariam Toews — A boy of good breeding *****

Hosea Funk, the mayor of a small town, is obsessed in obtaining the perfect population figure in the hope of meeting the prime minister. He drags Knute along as he checks on births and deaths, making this a humourous tale.

I saw a comment at my local library that someone thought this was her worst novel. I totally disagree. I think it’s her best. Her other novels are depressing tales; this one is nothing but laughs.
