Lions's Mouth by Caterina Edwards

Book Description

n The Lion's Mouth, an Italian-Canadian woman, Bianca, tells the story of her beloved cousin, Marco, whose life is disintegrating along with his city - Venice. Marco is her dark twin, her Italian self. As she tries to make sense of her cousin's breakdown, she describes her story and reflects on her immigrant and Canadian experiences, coming to terms with her dual cultures. The novel is multifaceted - a thriller, a study of social mores in Italy and Canada, a portrait of Venice, a self-reflexive account - and yet the whole is seamless, powerful, and elegant.
