"WOW, WOW, WOW
I want to roar READ THIS BOOK!...A debut novel it may be, yet it introduces the voice of an enlightened, gifted storyteller".
Sheree Fitch award-winning Canadian author
Fierce, tender, brave, and incendiary, Roar is a story for these fractious times that couldn’t be more true...here’s a righteous shredding of the ignorance that underlies transphobic, and by extension all, hatred. As Thompson so compellingly shows us, keeping silent only nurtures it.
Carol Bruneau, 2001 Thomas Head Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award and the Dartmouth Book Award.

Fire and ash, breath, spirit and mist, forest, river and sea, earth wafting sweet scents of peony, honeysuckle. Shelley Thompson’s Roar is a beautiful, deeply immersive story of a family’s resilience through loss, and their work of healing...We’ve always needed this story but now we need it more than ever.
