Getting a life ... and a dog
Amulet Books (an imprint of Abrams) has published a charming novel for teens by Art Corriveau. How I, Nicky Flynn, Finally Get a Life (and a Dog) has been getting kudos galore. It has been chosen as a "Top 10" pick for the Summer 2010 Kids' Indie Next List. The Washington Post called it a "fresh mystery that is believable as a kid's experience." In 2007 we published Corriveau's short story collection, Blood Pudding, in our Esplanade fiction series. According to the Globe and Mail, "Corriveau's versatility is impressive--he writes of men and women, gay and straight, blind and sighted, with equal verisimilitude." Congratulations, Art!
