When young single mothers Lish and Lucy leave the Have-a-Life welfare housing project and head to Colorado to find the fire-eater who fathered Lish's twins, Lucy discovers this just may be the summer of her amazing luck.
From the Publisher:
Lucy Von Alstyne sends fictitious letters to her friend Alicia, pretending to be the father of Alicia's twins, and the two welfare mothers and their five children set off on a journey to find him, facing along the way the complications of living in poverty and raising fatherless children.
Annotation:
Miriam Toews' unsentimental comic debut is set in a Winnipeg housing project, where two teenage mothers, Lucy and Lish, yearn for men, sex, and money in an utterly human and heartfelt fashion. Ever since her mother was murdered, Lucy has slept with countless men; her funky friend Lish pines for the fire-eating man who unknowingly knocked her up and left town. Eventually, they two will go on a madcap and misguided road trip in search of Lish's baby's daddy. Though Toews writing is painfully funny, the humiliations and tribulations of poverty are sharply felt.
