The First Quarter of the Moon

Patty Osborne

At press time I am in the middle of The First Quarter of the Moon (TalonBooks) by Michel Tremblay (translated by Sheila Fischman), and so far have been completely drawn in by the complicated and contradictory relationship between two young boys—the fat woman's son (he is not named) and his cousin Marcel. The fat woman's son is a small boy who generally behaves himself and does well at school. The back cover blurb says that the story takes place over one day. So far I've read up to lunchtime and it keeps getting better and better.
