“Kathleen Winter’s novel, Annabel, is absolutely riveting from the very first page. At its most basic, Annabel is the story of a hermaphrodite child raised in Labrador. It is about the struggle of genders within one child, and how that struggle makes the child another thing entirely, though effectively about any kind of suppression. Its language is breathtaking and her subject is thrilling because – hard to manage these days – it is so very new. I have friends I worry about handing this novel to, because of its subversive, but beautiful, power.”
