"One person's experiences coming of age in the 1970s and 80s among the small towns and steel cities of the rugged Canadian Shield, Arcadia Borealis is a deeply reflective meditation on time, change, and the meaning of home. A linked series of self-contained essays that move from hockey cards and comic books to Black Sabbath and The Exorcist, and from classmates and neighbour kids to drug dealers and drinking buddies, its real subject is memory: looking back on a life transformed, on the people who shared part of the journey and the bittersweet perspectives on the journey's end."--
