's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: read-for-work

A small-town French-Canadian boy makes it in America, experiencing all the joys and sorrows of the past 50 years: feminism, Vietnam War and draft dodgers, hippies, art, love, TV, anti-abortion activists. But returning to his roots, on the Gaspe Peninsula, he finds where he truly belongs. Reminds me of Forrest Gump for the tour of recent world events and Fifth Business for the character on the sideline experiencing history unfold.
