Blood Pudding

Art Corriveau

Blood Pudding chronicles the lives of people on the margins-from a street hustler in Montreal and a priest in Burkina Faso to the mother of a bride in Boston and a blind woman in Amsterdam. Characters who span the globe are united by family and friendships that bind them [and us] together. These off-beat tales offer insight into the ways we deal with love and loss, and how crisis can sometimes give rise to moments of pure magic.

Praise for Don Coles's work:

"Coles writes so elegantly and so convincingly that we would follow him anywhere." -Literary Review of Canada
