Can anybody identify this novel?

I'm trying to remember the name of a novel I read when I was in school. I believe it was Canadian, and the main character was a goodhearted but simpleminded, somewhat overweight female prostitute living in a small town. I also believe the title was her nickname; I thought it was "Sweetie," but that has proven to be incorrect.

Best answer: It sounds like you are describing Crackpot, a wonderful and disturbing and sad novel by Adele Wiseman.

She also wrote The Sacrifice, which is great. Her daughter is a good friend of mine!
