Product Overview

Two years ago, singer-songwriter Wesley Stace blew onto the literary scene with his bold and free-wheeling Dickensian comedy Misfortune. Now, he is back with another wonderfully entertaining and inventive novel. By George is the twisting story of four generations of the curious Fisher family, as told by two boys named George Fisher: one, a schoolboy in the 1970s; the other, a ventriloquist''s dummy in the second World War. It''s a story of love, loss and family ties, and of two boys separated by years but driven by the same desires: to find a voice, and to be loved.
Praise for BY GEORGE:
"By George is one of those rare works of fiction with an essential triple helix -- it''s funny, it''s clever and it''s perfectly woven together with story. If writing is how we imagine not being lobely, as Wesley Stace suggests, then his conjuring trick as a writer is that he brings a large crowd along with him. This is a wonderful follow-up to his debut novel, Misfortune" -- Colum McCann, author of Zoliand Dancer
"Filled with wit, warmth and imagination... Stace amasses enough gently ironic humor, emotion and insight to carry his voices beautifully." -- "Publishers Weekly"
