Run by Karen Morton, the eccentric, sex-fantasy-prone mother in
a hilarious yet deeply troubled dysfunctional family in North
Vancouver, the Footstop Cafe is a place to put your feet up near
the beautiful but tragedy-plagued Lynn Canyon and its
vertigo-inspiring footbridge. The canyon and the cafe serve as the
nexus around which Karen's universe revolves. Things happen here.
Karen's husband is a podiatrist with a foot fetish, her teenage
daughter thinks she's a lesbian but is afraid to confront the
reality, and her younger son is given to having bowel movements in
closets and building bombs. Throw in Karen's unconventional
Anglican minister father and his Tibetan wife, a hairy belly dancer
named Moey, a randy virgin high school diver with Olympic
ambitions, and a host of other quirky, unforgettable characters and
you have a debut novel that is at turns absurdist, touching, manic,
and supremely irreverent.
