Last Seen, Matt Cohen's second-to-last novel, was a finalist for the Governor General's Award for Fiction and the Trillium Award. This audiobook edition, narrated by R.H. Thompson, is a darkly comic story of two brothers and a woman who brings them both back to life. Harold, the older brother, is handsome and charming but dying of cancer. Alex is bookish and a scholar in Europe. With Francine, a nurse they both once loved, Alec cares for Harold until he dies. One day, Alec goes into a bar full of Elvis impersonators and there meets Francine — and Harold. Why has Harold come back from the dead? Last Seen demonstrates that it takes more than death to untie the knot between two brothers.
"Rich and imaginative . . . Last Seen is an exquisitly written and solemnly uplifing novel."
"Unforgettable . . . will leave empathetic readers sweaty-palmed and gasping."
"Moving and trenchantly funny . . . a kaleidoscopic study of the complications of brotherly love and family."
