The Colony of Unrequited Dreams - Wayne Johnston

Your Price: $22.00
Part Number:10663
A mystery and a love story spanning five decades, The Colony of Unrequited Dreams is an epic portrait of passion and ambition, set against the beautiful, brutal landscape of Newfoundland. In this widely acclaimed novel, Johnston has created two of the most memorable characters in modern fiction: Joey Smallwood, who claws his way up from poverty to become Newfoundland's first premier; and Sheilagh Fielding, who renounces her father's wealth to become a popular columnist and writer, a gifted satirist who casts haunting shadow on Smallwood's life and career.

A tragicomic elegy for the "colony of unrequited dreams" that is Newfoundland, Wayne Johnston's masterful tribute to a people and a place established him as a novelist who is as profound as he is funny, with an impeccable sense of the point where private lives and history collide.
