Description

From the Giller Prize-winning author of The Bishop's Man comes a stunning Cape Breton coming-of-age story, enchanting, hilarious, and heartbreaking

Winner of the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction and the Evelyn Richardson Non-Fiction Award

National bestseller and a Globe and Mail Best Book of the Year and Finalist for the OLA Evergreen Award

Causeway is Linden MacIntyre's evocative memoir of his Cape Breton childhood. At once a vibrant coming-of-age story, a portrait of a vanishing way of life and a reflection on fathers and sons, the narrative revolves around the construction of the Canso Causeway that would link the small Cape Breton village of MacIntyre's childhood to the wide world of the mainland. Shot through with humour, humanity and vivid characters, Causeway is an extraordinary book, a memoir that has set a new standard for the genre.
