La description

Sunday’s father is dying of cancer. They’ve come home to Malagash, on the north shore of Nova Scotia, so he can die where he grew up. Her mother and her brother are both devastated. Devastated doesn’t fix anything. Sunday has a plan. A computer virus that will think her father’s thoughts and say her father’s words. She has thousands of lines of code to write. Cryptography to understand. Exploits to test. She doesn’t have time to be sad. Her father is going to live forever. To learn more about this publisher, click here: http://bit. ly/2wmJ9vl


Malagash is a poignant snapshot of the wonder, joy, sorrow, and reckless daring of being alive. With it, Joey Comeau cements his place among Canada’s most talented and original writers. I loved this cleverly tender and unforgettable heartbreak of a book and I know you will too. A Monster Calls for a plugged-in age. ” — Courtney Summers, author of This Is Not a Test and All the Rage

“Comeau’s style is sparse but powerful. …Malagash is a darkly humored exploration of death, family, and grief, eloquent despite its short 183 pages, devastating despite its simplicity. Highly recommend. ” — BumbleBookBee blog

“Known primarily for darkly comic novels and the webcomic A Softer World, Comeau effortlessly switches gears to expose the trauma, heartbreak, and humor in loss…an immensely touching tribute to a very human struggle with mortality. ” — Publishers Weekly

“Comeau resists sentimentality, and, given his subject matter, that’s no small feat…” — Publishers Weekly

“Graceful images, scenes and dialogue blossom, meaning Malagash rings with authentic emotion…Comeau gives readers a spare novel that feels real when it counts. ” — Toronto Star
