The Little Brudders of Misericorde front cover

A novel

Author: David M. Wallace

Man and mouse.: partners in crime who together navigate a world of saints, sinners, acceptance and forgiveness

Spence is lost—the brief optimism of his early retirement and bold move from Vancouver to Montréal has devolved to a lonely round of French classes, winter cycling and watering his absent daughter’s house plants. Set adrift, he struggles to find some fragile solace in the tenuous remnants of the Catholicism that once grounded him. He cannot shake a persistent melancholy and a growing anxiety as unbidden memories of a buried past re-emerge. 

Distraction arrives in the form of a casual roommate, who moves into Spence ’s apartment uninvited. Thierry is a petty thief with strong opinions and a foul mouth who draws the former drama teacher into an unexpected theatre of conspiracies. Both mentor and latest student, Thierry, une petite souris, becomes Spence’s little brother in crime on a journey that is both moving et amusant, sacred et sacré bleu.

A darkly humorous tale, The Little Brudders of Miséricorde presents an engaging, thought-provoking take on faith, abuse survival and mental health.
