Product Details


Included in the CBC’s October 2022 Hot Off the Press reading list

“The combination of verse and prose keeps the pace moving, and colloquialisms add to the sense of place. A textured coming-of-age story deeply rooted in a working-class community.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“An emotional thread that packs a wallop fit for the boxing ring. With an unshakable sense of place and a quick one-two punch ending, this is a novel that appeals most to a specific reader but that will open up a new world for others who give it a try.”

“Dynamic verse and sincere prose…Prominent messages about classism and forgiveness add layers to this insightful rendering of the amateur boxing world.”
Publishers Weekly

“An uncompromising and unflinching novel that certainly packs a punch.” 
—Brian Conaghan, author of The Boy Who Made it Rain

“Gutsy, gripping and dangerous yet full of heart, truth and soul. Duckhouse’s exceptional debut floats like a butterfly, stings like a poet.”
—Keith Gray, author of Ostrich Boys and The Climbers

“Brave and bold, a proper right hook to the senses.”
—Phil Earle
