In her debut novel, Little Fish, Lambda Literary Award-winner Casey Plett tells a heartbreaking but hopeful story about time, identity, and the intricate relationships that tie people together. The events of Little Fish take place during a Winnipeg winter, and Plett does an extraordinary job of setting the tone of the novel through the characters’ interactions in this unique context. Little Fish is not an easy read; rather, it will challenge readers to reflect upon their own understandings of humanity and love, and to ask themselves how we may be responsible to and for each other.
