From the Back Cover:

Hoda, the protagonist of CRACKPOT, is one of the most captivating characters in Canadian fiction. Graduating from a tumultuous childhood to a life of prostitution, she becomes a legend in her neighbourhood, a canny and ingenious woman, generous, intuitive, and exuding a wholesome lust for life.

Richly textured, resonant with myth and superstition, hearty and humorous, CRACKPOT insightfully and sensitively maps out a complex world of social and personal relationships. This radiant novel is a joyous celebration of life and of the mystery that is at the heart of all experience. [Adele Wiseman]
