Hoda, the protagonist of Crackpot, is one of the most captivating characters in Canadian fiction. Graduating from a tumultuous childhood to a life of prostitution, she becomes a legend in her neighbourhood, a canny and ingenious woman, generous, intuitive, and exuding a wholesome lust for life.
Resonant with myth and superstition, this radiant novel is a joyous celebration of life and the mystery that is at the heart of all experience.
