About this title

Synopsis:

A moving first-person narrative records the struggle and turmoil of a life of poverty and despair in rural southeastern Canada, as seen through the eyes of perceptive and innocent nine-year-old girl. A first novel.

From the Inside Flap:

Mama suffers from mental illness, Daddy hides out in the well house drinking beer, and Sister has a brutish husband who slaps her around. When 15-year-old Eddie returns home from reform school, things seem to be looking up. But before long Eddie is gone again — this time for good.

Deborah Joy Corey's haunting portrayal of a rural family in crisis won the SmithBooks/Books in Canada First Novel Award. This powerful audio recording, dramatized by the author, features Annick Obonsawin as Eddie's stoic nine-year-old sister. With heart-wrenching dispassion, she describes the succession of tragedies that threaten to unravel this already vulnerable household, culminating in the loss of Eddie and Mama's violent depression. Also starring Linda Griffiths, Richard Donat, and Shannon Lawson, Losing Eddie is a poignant tribute to the resilience of the human spirit.
