Description

In The End of Music, Jamie Fitzpatrick’s two mesmerizing, interwoven narratives circle the lives of Joyce, a modern young woman navigating the fraught social mores of a small town in its post-war heyday, and her son, Carter, more than fifty years later, whose days as an aspiring rock star are over. As Joyce’s memories of the past begin to escape her, her son’s past returns to haunt him. Brilliantly and unflinchingly revealing the inner lives of his characters, Fitzpatrick offers an extraordinary novel, with two startling twists, about women, men, and reckoning with the past.

About the Author
Jamie Fitzpatrick’s first novel, You Could Believe in Nothing (Vagrant Press), has been called “a fast-moving, unsentimental look at amateur hockey, masculinity, mid-life crisis, drink, drugs and family secrets … brisk, engaging and, in the end, very moving” (Globe and Mail). His writing has also appeared in The New Quarterly, St. John’s Telegram, Newfoundland Quarterly and the 2013 Cuffer Anthology (forthcoming). He lives in St. John’s.
