"What if Anne Shirley, the sweet heroine of Lucy Maud Montgomery'snovels, was born in 1970 and decided to join a rock band? John Stiles' won derful first novel answers these questions, in a manner of speaking. In thegrand tradition of the Bible's prodigal son, Charles Dickens's 'Great Expe tations' and James Joyce's 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man', Stiles gives us 'The Insolent Boy'. Our hero, Selwyn Davis, behins his eventful life in rural Nova Scotia, an orphan raised by an eccentric minister and his kindly wife. Selwyn manages to conquer childhood, only to go through his high school years as a misfit. He then falls in love, moves to Vancouver, joins a rock band, tours Europe, and eventually makes his way back home to Canada." -from the rear cover. Very good. Signed and inscribed by Stiles on the flyleaf in black ink, and signed without inscription on the title page in blue ink. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be cheaper than quoted. 12.50
