Bishop's Road by Catherine Safer

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Bishop's Road is set in contemporary St. John's and tells the story of a year in the lives of a handful of odd characters, women mostly, shaken out of their pathetic complacency by a teenage delinquent with magic in her eyes. There are bones in the attic, humour, tragedy, joy, a little romance, murder and some madness and the delicious realization that life is best lived out loud.
