Finalist for the 2015 Giller Prize Among The National Post's Top 5 Books of 2015 Among The Toronto Star's Top 5 Fiction Books of 2015 Among Largehearted Boy's Favourite Novels of 2015 One of Quill & Quire's Books of the Year, 2015 Among The Edmonton Journal's Top 5 Books of 2015 A 49th Shelf Book of the Year, 2015 Among NOW Toronto's Top 10 Books of 2015 Martin John's mam says that she is glad he is done with it. But is Martin John done with it? He says he wants it to stop, his mother wants it to stop, we all want it to stop. But is it really what Martin John wants? He had it in his mind to do it and he did it. Harm was done when he did it. Harm would continue to be done. Who will stop Martin John? Will you stop him? Should she stop him? From Anakana Schofield, the brilliant author of the bestselling Malarky, comes a darkly comic novel circuiting through the mind, motivations and preoccupations of a character many women have experienced but few have understood quite so well. The result confirms Schofield as one of the bravest and most innovative authors at work in English today. Anakana Schofield is an Irish-born writer, who won the Amazon.ca First Novel Award and the Debut-Litzer Prize for Fiction in 2013 for her debut novel Malarky.
