A classic work of award-winning Atlantic fiction
Leah is haunted: by the things she’s done, and the things she has failed to do. And then there’s the the ghost of her brother. She has to learn to let go of the past if she, or her brother, are ever going to move on.
A funny, urban story, Homing is about love, death, and rock and roll—through the eyes of a woman who’s grown afraid of the city, a ghost who’s lost his way, a musician who’s trying to find his, and Sandy and Harold, a pair of homing pigeons who help each of them bring it all home.
Stephanie Domet lives in Halifax with her husband. Her debut novel, Homing, won the Margaret and John Savage First Book Award. She is forever trying to perfect homemade ravioli, and a piano rendition of “Sweet Caroline”.
“Stephanie Domet’s writing is lyrical and profound, wired with amplified moments of wonder and grace.” – John K. Samson, singer-songwriter, The Weakerthans
“Homing anchored me from the first page… I wanted to hide away and not come out of my reading nook until it was all done.” — R.H. Downs
“I love the way the narration skips around from one person to another through the whole book. It kept the story moving along at a quick pace… Domet’s writing style is amusing and engaging, and you really end up caring about her characters.” — Consumed by Ink
