Miriam Toews grew up in a Mennonite community in Southern Manitoba. She now lives in Winnipeg with her family.
"A Boy of Good Breeding caught me at the throat, made me laugh and weep with sad-sweet joy ... [The characters ] get under your skin, and finally, it seems, into your very blood, where they quicken the heart ...Tonic for the spirit: a charming, deeply moving, unerringly human story, perfectly shaped and beautifully told." The Globe and Mail Reading [Toews ] is like climbing into a fizzy bath of lunatic humour ...Buried in the mysteries of parenthood, love and death are at least a couple of home truths. Toronto Star
