Alligator by Lisa Moore

This is another library selection that I made on the basis of the cover. This novel is written by a Canadian author and is set in Newfoundland. It features an unusual cast of characters. For example, the first character readers meet is 17 year old, ecoterrorist Colleen, who is downloading video clips of beheadings after watching a man who places his head inside the jaws of an alligator. The book is told from multiple points of view, and I was mildly fascinated by whole lot of folks Moore creates in this quirky little novel.

If you're now a Lisa Moore fan (and I hope you are) you might enjoy her short story collection titled 'Open.' You might enjoy it even more having it read to you by Lisa herself and a host of other Newfoundland performers. Check it out at
