Description

Guy Vanderhaeghe's award-winning novel tells the interwoven stories of a struggling Hollywood screenwriter and a drifter known as "the Englishman's boy." Spanning two centuries, two countries, and two very different views of history, The Englishman's Boy links the movie culture of the Hollywood of the roaring twenties with the brutal raid against an Indian tribe in "Whoop-Up country" (the border between Montana and Alberta). The Englishman's Boy won the Governor General's Award for fiction in 1996 and was shortlisted for both the Giller Prize and the International IMPAC Dublin Award. It has now been adapted for the small screen, and will be broadcast as a four-hour mini-series on CBC Television in the fall of 2007.
