Acerca de


At the core of this haunting multigenerational novel are the shifting faces of Mala - adventurer and protector, recluse and madwoman. Told by Tyler, Mala's vivacious male caretaker at the Paradise Alms House, the story is layered with unforgettable scenes of a world where love and treachery collide. Part magic realism, part psychological drama, Cereus Blooms at Night is as luscious as the cereus blossom whose scent can transport you to unimaginable realms.


Cereus Blooms at Night, writer and artist Shani Mootoo's first novel, was a finalist for several of Canada's most prestigious literary awards, including the Giller Prize and the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize. Tyler, the narrator of this multigenerational novel, is a gay male nurse at a residential home in Paradise, a town on the amazing fictional island of Lantanacamara. Tyler's favorite charge is the notorious Mala Ramchandin, whose past is as rich and mysterious as the island setting. Through dialogue and flashback Tyler learns of the colonialism and racism, love and envy, betrayal, incest, death, abandonment, and lesbian escape that are part of the complicated Ramchandin family history.
