About this product
- DescriptionIn this post-modern vel about shifting views of history, a young journalist covering the visit of a French prime minister to Quebec becomes fascinated by a newspaper photograph of historic Trestler House. Curious about how such a landmark sheds light on the difference between personal and national identity, he decides to research the history of the grand old building. As he tours the house and gathers documents, its many rooms become symbols of various historical narratives that describe place and time. Asking whether history can truthfully depict every aspect of an event, the vel considers the intrusion of memories and sensations into historical accounts and wonders about the hidden meanings that are t immediately apparent. The result is an intriguing story that shows how multiple approaches -- including fictional narrative -- often yield the most authentic history.
