    Baby is twelve years old. Her mother died not long after she was born and she lives in a string of seedy flats in Montreal's red light district with her father Jules, who takes better care of his heroin addiction than he does of his daughter. Jules is an intermittent presence and a constant source of chaos in Baby's life - the turmoil he brings with him and the wreckage he leaves in his wake. Baby finds herself constantly re-adjusting to new situations, new foster homes, new places, new people, all the while longing for ... Show more

You Won't be Lullabied

by JaneAustentacious on Apr 3, 2007

While reading this book I found myself hoping and even praying for the young girl being raised by a single parent drug-addicted father. Every once in a while I would tell myself, this could never be true. And then I read the biography of the author. This author knows whereof she speaks. I found this book impossible to set down, so if you have unbridled reading habits, make sure you have the time to finish without disrupting your life. This is a Canadian book and persons in Montreal will probably recognize street names. This is a book with wonderfully drawn pictures of dysfunctional families that still succeed in loving both their own children and those of their neighbours. This is a book to remind us that people who carry heavy burdens of guilt and sorrow, need our understanding and help, not our censure and trite advice. It is not always possible to pull up one's own socks.
