Description

In the 1960s, Toronto was a city of shifting societal dynamics, and this engrossing memoir perfectly captures the essence of this exhilarating and tumultuous time. It begins with Martin Hunter returning to his birthplace, where he marries his teenage sweetheart, goes to work for the family paper company, fathers three children, and settles into a conventional life. But this comfortable bourgeois existence is disrupted with the arrival of the Swinging Sixties—and the wild parties and flamboyant characters that accompanied the famously iconoclastic decade. After writing a racy, award-winning play about the city’s changing social climate, the University of Toronto offers him a position as playwright-in-residence, thus plunging him into Toronto’s vibrant theatre scene and setting the stage for many adventures to follow. Skillfully written and full of unforgettable characters, this book chronicles Hunter’s adventures in Europe and the Middle East, reveals his stories of working in the theatre, and shares tales of his spirited friends, colleagues, and loved ones.

Editorial Reviews

"Martin Hunter's coming-of-age story is an entertaining and easy-to-read memoir that puts the lie to the common perception of post-war Toronto as a stuffy, boring outpost... Young Hunting is a rare and honest recollection of young adulthood, and an intensely personal reminiscence of one man's passage through Toronto the Good." — Quill and Quire on Young Hunting


"[Hunter is] such a great writer that I was frozen at times...I felt at moments as if I was reading Alice Munro...An exquisite piece of memoir writing." — The Next Chapter , CBC Radio
