Summary
From Newfoundland comes a fabulous new voice in a novel where humanity is a bizarre combination of the reptilian and the saintly. Shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller, the Canadian Booker Prize and regional winner of the Commonwealth Writers Prize.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Lisa Moore's wickedly fresh first novella Canadian bestseller, winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize (Canadian and Caribbean region), and a Globe and Mail Book of the Year moves with the swiftness of an alligator in attack mode through the lives of a group of brilliantly rendered characters mingling in contemporary St. John's, Newfoundland.

St. John's is a city whose spiritual location is somewhere in the heart of Flannery O'Connor country. Its denizens jostle one another in uneasy arabesques of desire, greed, and ambition, juxtaposed with a yearning for purity, depth, and redemption.

Colleen is a 17-year-old would-be ecoterrorist, drawn inexorably to the places where alligators thrive. Her mother, Beverly, is cloaked in grief after the death of her husband. Beverly's sister, Madeleine, is a driven, aging filmmaker who obsesses over completing her magnum opus before she dies. And Frank, a young man whose life is a strange anthology of unpredictable dangers, is desperate to protect his hot-dog stand from sociopathic Russian sailor Valentin, whose predatory tendencies threaten everyone he encounters.

Alligator is a remarkable audiobook, a suspenseful, heartfelt, and sexy story that examines the ruthlessly reptilian and painfully human sides of all of us.
