“One of the funniest books of the year.”

Literary Review of Canada


Toronto is not a place Daniel Foster wants to be for very long. If not for his daughter Mary being in financial trouble, he would not be here at all. What he really wants is to be back in the Arabian Peninsula or, better yet, on a plane leading to retirement in Thailand. But when the bank that holds his million-dollar savings crashes, he realizes he will be stuck in Toronto much longer than he expected. Forced to move in with Mary and her daughter Shawna, Foster must relearn everything he thought he knew: job skills, parenting, even how to love again.

Passing Through is a funny and thought-provoking look at what it takes to keep going after losing everything.
