Lisa Moore’s wickedly clean first novel—a Canadian top vendor, winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize (Canadian and Caribbean region), and a Globe and Mail publication of the Year—moves with the swiftness of an alligator in assault mode in the course of the lives of a gaggle of brilliantly rendered characters mingling in modern St. John’s, Newfoundland. St. John’s is a urban whose non secular position is someplace within the center of Flannery O’Connor nation. Its denizens jostle each other in uneasy arabesques of wish, greed, and ambition, juxtaposed with a craving for purity, intensity, and redemption. Colleen is a seventeen-year-old would-be ecoterrorist, drawn inexorably to the locations the place alligators thrive. Her mom, Beverly, is cloaked in grief after the demise of her husband. Beverly’s sister, Madeleine, is a pushed, getting older filmmaker who obsesses over finishing her magnum opus prior to she dies. And Frank, a tender guy whose existence is an odd anthology of unpredictable risks, is eager to defend his hot-dog stand from sociopathic Russian sailor Valentin, whose predatory trends threaten each person he encounters. Alligator is a awesome publication, a suspenseful, heartfelt, and attractive tale that examines the ruthlessly reptilian and painfully human aspects of all of us.
