I Am A Truck – Michelle Winters

Download I Am A Truck ebook. Fiction. Shortlisted for the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize. A tender but lively debut novel about a man, a woman, and their Chevrolet dealer.

Agathe and Réjean Lapointe are about to celebrate their twentieth wedding anniversary when Réjean’s beloved Chevy Silverado is found abandoned at the side of the road — with no trace of Réjean. Agathe handles her grief by fondling the shirts in the Big and Tall department at Hickey’s Family Apparel and carrying on a relationship with a cigarette survey. As her hope dwindles, Agathe falls in with her spirited coworker, Debbie, who teaches Agathe about rock and roll, and with Martin Bureau, the one man who might know the truth about Réjean’s fate. Set against the landscape of rural Acadia, I AM A TRUCK is a funny and moving tale about the possibilities and impossibilities of love and loyalty.

“The wonder–packed drama of I AM A TRUCK plays itself out in the impossible intersection of a Coen brothers movie, a James M. Cain novel and a Looney Tunes feature. Michelle Winters has created a fresh novel overflowing with mystery, emotional complexity and a new and welcome breed of goofy charm.” —Stuart Ross

Editorial Reviews

“Beautiful pacing and writing also characterize ‘Toupee’ by Michelle Winters. The first sentence alerted us that we had found something fresh: ‘I saw him on the subway for the first time the day I brought the meat bomb to work.’ But the most moving part of this story about a disgruntled employee is the exquisite and powerful turn in the last line of dialogue; the deft use of a sad refrain made us wince (in a good way).” –Alexander MacLeod, Alison Pick, and Sarah Selecky in the introduction to The Journey Prize Stories 23

“This fast-paced, quirky, heart warming and hilarious novel captures the fast and loose crossovers of language and culture that make southeast New Brunswick unique.” – Geist”Winters is an ace at slyly building tension; after a couple chapters we find ourselves in the middle of a detective story, wrapped in a love story, wrapped in a portrait of a part of French Canada that is unlike any other region in the country.” – Matrix Magazine”I Am a Truck, by New Brunswick writer Michelle Winters, features a Chevy Silverado in a short novel with the feel of a Coen brothers’ film…This is a story about driving, freedom, rock ‘n’ roll and the joys of taking control of your own destiny–and destination.” –Toronto Star”The wonder-packed drama of I Am a Truck plays itself out in the impossible intersection of a Coen brothers movie, a James M.
