Set in the small town of Grenville, Ontario, a setting perhaps familiar to the reader from the author's previous novel Cadillac Road, this story progresses from the 1950s through the 1980s. In 1940, five-year-old Martin Thorton fell from the family's apartment balcony, suffering catastrophic and permanent injuries. His accident plays a role in everything that happens afterwards ? his marginalization growing up a disabled person, his mother's guilt and unfailing devotion, his sister's alienation. Told from the point of view of his sister Gretchen, and his friend Donna, this is Martin's story.

Kristin Andrychuk was raised in Southern Ontario, in an area of stark contrasts between a conservative village and a vibrant summer resort town close to Buffalo, New York. Place and family relationships majorly influence the stories she tells in her poetry, short stories and novels. Mother's Genius is her fourth novel. She resides in Kingston.
