Stolen

By (author): Annette Lapointe

Rowan Friesen has made a career of drug dealing and small-time thievery. He lives a loner’s life on the outer reaches of Saskatoon, selling cystal meth to highschoolers and hawking his pilfered loot on the net. Shiftless and seemingly friendless, he is, at first glance, an unlikely and unlikable protagonist.
But as Stolen unfolds, we learn the details of Rowan’s life: his well-meaning but self-absorbed mother, his mentally ill father, and a high school friendship both lustful and incendiary.
Praise for Stolen:
“Lapointe constructs the familiar world, the one inside each of us, in the lives of strangers. It’s what fiction does best.” —The Globe & Mail
“It moves with the force of what’s right and true and must not be elided.” —Giller Prize Jury
