Description

Wanda Jaynes is about to lose her job amidst a mountain of bills, and she suspects her musician boyfriend might be romantically interested in his friend, Trish. But Wanda’s life changes radically on a routine trip to the grocery store when a gunman enters the supermarket and opens fire.

The Greatest Hits of Wanda Jaynes is the highly anticipated debut novel by Bridget Canning, one of the most promising new writers from Newfoundland, and is an energetic page-turner about the power of selflessness in a contemporary culture of fear and suspicion.

Editorial Reviews

"The Greatest Hits of Wanda Jaynes is crafted with immediate, often urgent, writing, a satisfying read, and good work."

— The Telegram

“Bridget Canning is a fierce new talent.”

— Lisa Moore

"Through her reluctant heroine, Canning explores the privacy impacts of the new necessity to keep up via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or wherever. When does that participation equal surrendering our privacy?"

— Newfoundland Quarterly

“Like an east-coast emotional weather report, The Greatest Hits of Wanda Jaynes exposes the sarcasm, humour, resentment, and friendship that protects the core of every heart. Bridget Canning lays bare the passel of emotions that emerge once ‘the juice is shaken out of you’.”

— Michael Winter
