Constant Nobody reviewed in Newfoundland and Labrador Studies

“[Butler Hallett] injects some much-needed ambiguity and questioning into these tropes — all too often misogynistic to their core — and implies a number of interesting and difficult questions. What does it mean for a capable girl or an orphaned boy to be rescued? Is it possible to rescue? What are the motivations of the rescuer? Is true escape even possible in a world separated by the paranoia shaped by the Cold War?”

Nathan Elliott reviews Constant Nobody in Newfoundland and Labrador Studies, 31, 1 (2021).
