A story about identity—about who we think we are and where we really stand. Set in rural Ontario, this novel takes a provocative and honest look at class, power, male relationships, death, and the familial bonds that protect and harm us most.
After a lifetime intertwined with the Aspinalls, one of Canada’s wealthiest families, Andy Kronk has finally forged a clean break. Mere months pass, however, before his past returns in the form of Trudy Clark. She’s writing a tell-all biography of the Aspinall family and wants Andy’s perspective. Over the course of a weekend, Andy unravels his knotted mess of a life and begins to wonder if he’s revealed too much information. Written in forceful prose, this novel opens up the world of power to reveal something essentially, heartbreakingly human.
