A worthy additional the Canadian canon

This was a truly good read.  I think back to my undergraduate degree in English, and I wish I could have read more books like this.  I really enjoyed this - the story was really well crafted, and I found I could relate to the main character a fair bit.  Coming from a working class background and being one of the first people in my family to graduate from a post secondary institution, I could recognize some of the experiences in this book.  Some passages were beautiful, and I think a real balance was struck in this book that you don't often find.  This is a book that will stay with me a while...
