With her multiple-award-winning, bestselling, and critically acclaimed novel The Outlander, Gil Adamson established herself as one of our preeminent fiction writers. But ten years before The Outlander, when Adamson published another book of fiction with a small press, readers and critics immediately sat up and took note. Barbara Gowdy called Help Me, Jacques Cousteau "outstanding . . . smart, haunting, utterly original."Help Me, Jacques Cousteau presents the life and times of Hazel and her brother Andrew, who are born into an extraordinary family who share only one thing: a penchant for eccentric behaviour. Adamson demonstrates her powerful prose style, uniquely combining a scientist's loving attention to detail, a comic's unerring delivery and a poet's sublime ear.With this updated edition, Adamson's brilliant, fascinating, and funny portrait of a contemporary young woman's coming of age is ready for readers once again.
