About this product
- DescriptionLike his attempts to swim over the dark water of the river that lies between him and the object of his affections, twelve-year-old Dougaldo Montmigny struggles against oppression, homophobia and racism to realise his love for Tomahawk Clark, a thirteen-year-old Metis boy, during a summer destined to become a painful lesson on love and desire. Like sailors becalmed on idyllic ships, this story is a subtle revelation of the emotional turmoil that lies beneath a bewitchingly deceptive picture of perfection. The Summer Between is a metaphor for the struggles and rewards of living where origins, tempests and landscape inform our collective soul. In the spirit of Roddy Doyle's Paddy Clark Ha Ha Ha and Edmund White's A Boy's Own Story, readers will be moved by the touching circumstances of this incent narrative.
