About this title


The story is Roddie's. The stage is his guardian and grandfather Calum's. A quiet and stoic man, Calum Gillies and his aging friends illuminate for us the changing world around them: the loss of the coal mines, the labour strife and lean years endured, the religious parochialism that divides families and communities and, most important, a disappearing language. The setting is Cape Breton; the themes of cultural and rural change and decline are universal.

About the Author:

Frank Macdonald is one of Cape Breton’s most celebrated writers. Former publisher of the Inverness Oran, he is the author of three books and numerous short stories, poems and plays. His first novel A Forest for Calum was long-listed for the international IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and has been called a “Canadian Classic.” His original play Her Wake earned best Canadian entry in the Liverpool International Theatre Festival.
