After a thirty-year exile in Toronto, self-described” midlisting” Newfoundland author James Nightingale leaves behind a failed marriage to a successful classical musician, who has taken up with an avant-garde composer, and a middling, if critically successful, career to return temporarily to St. John’s to receive an honourary degree from his alma mater. Braving the obstacles of artistic and domestic uncertainty and neglected family obligations-not to mention a book-signing and a launch that go risibly wrong-he meets old friends whose own artistic lives have borne little fruit, and tries to come to terms with a talented daughter who, in defiance of her mother, has abandoned her classical-music roots in favour of performing “deconstructed” traditional Newfoundland songs. A father suffering from dementia but with a sharp memory of disappointment, and an untrustworthy former publisher who is reissuing his seminal first novel.
