Monoceros by Suzette Mayr

In today's Bibliofile, Priscila Uppal discusses Suzette Mayr's new novel Monoceros currently long-listed for the 2011 Giller Prize. It revolves around the tragic suicide of a gay teenager at a Catholic high school which precipitates a number of subsequent events in lives of his lover, his lover's girlfriend, students, those who barely knew the boy, and teachers who didn't reach out to him.

(Coach House Books, trade paperback, 2011, $20.95)
