- DescriptionSeventeen-year-old Samuel, naive and inexperienced, leaves his home in Trinidad for Canada following the death of his mother. He hasn't seen his father since he was six years old and w, thrust into a new life together, Samuel soon realizes that he is considered a burden.

There he encounters molemen, super-villains, chimeras, trolls and a host of sidekicks. With his fourth vel, Rabindranath Maharaj gives us his best work yet, a powerful and funny story of a naive young immigrant who is wise in the culture of comic books, and a portrait of big-city Canada we have never seen before.
