Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Miriam Toews delivers a funny novel about the smallest town in Canada. Algren, Manitoba, has 1,500 residents, and its obsessive mayor intends to keep it that way. For if Algren dips below 1,500, it becomes a village - and the prime minister has only promised to visit Canada's smallest town.

Critic Reviews

"A mellow summer interlude that allows readers to revel in the not-so-simple pleasures of small-town life, and consider what matters most." (Booklist)
