Finalist, The Margaret Laurence Award for Fiction Winner, Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award Finalist, McNally Robinson Book of the Year AwardAfter twenty years Max Binder is still in love with his fiery wife, Maggie, and is determined to get her the perfect fortieth birthday gift. But Max's singular desire -- to make his wife happy -- leads to an unexpected event that changes the course of his family's life and touches the people who make up their western prairie city.Set over the course of a single year, Once More With Feeling tells the story of a community through intersecting moments and interconnected lives. The colourful citizens who make up this city -- bisected by railway lines and rivers, connected by boulevards and back alleys -- are marked by transformation, upheaval, and loss: the worker at a downtown soup kitchen who recognizes a kindred spirit amongst the homeless; the aging sisters who everywhere see the fleeting ghosts of two missing neighbourhood children; a communal voice of mothers anxious for the future of their children in the discomfiting world they inhabit -- this place of memory, amnesia, longing, and belonging.Featuring a cast of eclectic characters, Once More With Feeling is about a community, about a family, and about the way time makes fond fools of us all. Award-winning author Méira Cook has crafted a novel that is at once funny, poignant, and yes, full of feeling.
