Galley Giveaway: Trevor Cole’s Darkly Comedic Novel: PRACTICAL JEAN

Acclaimed Canadian novelist Trevor Cole’s American debut, Practical Jean is the story of Jean, middle-aged, happily—if uninterestingly—married, with a group of friends she’s known for years. After seeing her mother suffer through the final devastating months of cancer, though, Jean realizes that her fondest wish is to protect her dearest friends from the indignities of aging and illness. And that’s when she decides to kill them . . .

Named one of the Best Book of 2010 by Globe and Mail in Canada, Practical Jean is sure strike a chord with students and fans of satire alike.

As one of the many high-praising reviews puts it:

“Cole’s biting and black comedy of middle-class mores gone murderously wrong combines diamond-cut social satire with thoughtful contemplations of friendship.”—Globe and Mail (Toronto)
