Crimes Against My Brother by David Adams Richards
In the interest of full disclosure, I want to say that I have loved every book by David Adams Richards I’ve ever read. I collect his books like I used to collect posters years ago to hang on my bedroom wall.
The stories and characters Richards creates leave you pining for more. He is in my opinion one of our greatest Canadian literary treasures.
There is an authenticity in the voices and the people he crafts, a gritty honesty that needles you like nothing else but good fiction can. His characters stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page. They haunt you with their hopes, dreams and folly.
