The Coming of Winter (New Canadian Library)

The Coming of Winter (New Canadian Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Adams Richards finds universal truths in the very particular setting of New Brunswicks Miramichi Valley. This, his first novel, provides a window upon a world that is as unsettling, as uncontrollable, and as inescapably authentic as a sudden brawl.

The frustrations of the community are brought into focus in the plights of 20-year-old Kevin Dulse, his family, and especially his wild young friends. An intensely realistic story, it stands firm upon its engaging, unaffected characters and the raw talent of its then 22-year-old author.

Synopsis:

McClelland & Stewart's elegant New Canadian Library series acknowledges and celebrates Canada's glorious literary achievements. Original Afterwords and bibliographies by leading writers complete each book.
-- Over 300 years of excellence in Canadian writing
-- Over one million sold since 1990

Synopsis:

From the vivid opening hunt scene, we are in a community whose frustrations come to focus in the plights of twenty-year-old Kevin Dulse, his family, and especially his wild young friends.

About the Author

David Adams Richards was born in Newcastle, New Brunswick, in 1950. He has published ten acclaimed novels, including the award-winning Miramichi trilogy - Nights Below Station Street, winner of the 1988 Governor Generals Award; Evening Snow Will Bring Such Peace (1990), winner of the Canadian Authors Association Award; and For Those Who Hunt the Wounded Down (1993), winner of the Thomas Raddall Award - Hope in the Desperate Hour (1996), The Bay of Love and Sorrows (1998), and, most recently, Mercy Among the Children (2000), co-winner of the prestigious Giller Prize. In 1993, Richards received the Canada-Australia Prize.

Richards has also published three non-fiction books, most recently the Governor Generals Award-winning fishing memoir Lines on the Water (1998), and has written Gemini Award-winning screenplays for the CBC-TV adaptations of his novels For Those Who Hunt the Wounded Down and Nights Below Station Street. “Small Gifts,” his original screenplay for CBC-TV, won a Gemini Award and the New York International Film Festival Award for Best Script.

Richards now lives in Toronto with his wife, Peggy, and their two sons.
