In FRANCIE’S GOT A GUN, award-winning writer Carrie Snyder realizes the great promise of her previous fiction, assembling a cast of unforgettable, tragi-comic characters who are equal parts compassion and cruelty, laughter and heartache. Here is a propulsive, multi-layered novel leavened with humour—and a memorable, affecting examination of the complex dynamics in a family that is breaking down and coming apart in front of the questioning, irrepressible young person at its centre.” (from the publisher)


“”Carrie Snyder has pulled off a magic trick with this novel—it is a literary feat.” (Emily Urquhart, bestselling author of Beyond the Pale)

FRANCIE’S GOT A GUN is at once tense and tragic, sweet and tender.” This is a strong, complex novel, with a myriad of layers. (The Miramachi Reader)
