Description

At the end of this story I’m going to kill myself. And then die. That’s the way it is. All good things must come to an end, including me.

Mama’s Boy: Game Over is the third and final book in David Goudreault’s bleakly comic bestselling Mama’s Boy trilogy. Mama’s Boy has been transferred from prison to a psychiatric hospital. He manages to escape, and goes on the run in Montreal, hiding in plain sight.

In his short but eventful life, Mama’s Boy has already managed to achieve most of his ambitions: fame, fatherhood, and friendship, at least in his own rather skewed perspective. But one goal remains: tracking down and reuniting with his estranged mother. By turns poignant and deeply uncomfortable, Mama’s Boy’s final journey is a wild, desperate bid for freedom, love, and family.

Praise for Mama’s Boy:

“David Goudreault will captivate you from the first line!”
—Kim Thuy, author of Vi and Ru
