Description

This is Alden Nowlan's poignant first novel, in which a boy growing up in a small Nova Scotia mill town is abandoned by the young mother he adores. Family relationships, sexual confusions, and the pains of love are rendered with deep and authentic feeling. This is an essential book for all those many readers who have admired the poems and stories of this major Canadian writer.
