Blood Ties. For David Adams Richards, this is not merely a figure of speech, it is an assertion of the reality of life in small-town Canada, where blood ties people in countless, almost unknowable ways to friends, community, and landscape.

The lives of three generations of MacDurmots form a Miramichi Valley family portrait that is beguiling and insightful, witty and tender. Employing dazzling angles of vision and fast-shifting perspectives, Richards captures the inner lives of his characters with sympathy and understanding.
