Sinopsis: Will Prentice, who immigrated to Canada from England thirty years ago, realizes that sometimes you have to leave home to find it. The week after his wife asks him for a divorce, Will returns to England to attend his mother?s funeral. Embarking on a driving tour of the English countryside, in part on a quest to unravel a secret from his mother?s past, in part trying to see how much of England he remembers, and where he belongs, he begins to reexamine his life back home in Canada. His driving companion is his uncle?s grandson, Fred, a recent Cambridge graduate at a crossroads in his life who is interested in Canadian Studies.

As Fred drives Will through various English boroughs, Will talks him through a journey across Canada, from the fishing villages of Labrador to the rainy coasts of British Columbia, reawakening Fred?s imagination and defining the heart of his own passion. Eric Wright?s portrait of two countries, Britain and Canada, supposedly similar but literally an ocean apart, asserts Canada?s uniqueness and reminds us that home is not only geography and landscape, but also a state of mind. Finding Home is a sensitive and optimistic look at Will?s search for a new beginning after work and kids that will resonate with anyone who has ever had to face an uncertain future.

Biografía del autor: Best known as a writer of award-winning detective fiction, including the Charlie Salter mysteries, Eric Wright has also written a comic novel (Moodies Tale) and Always Give a Penny to a Blind Man, his 1999 memoir which was nominated for the Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction. (The first chapter of that memoir first appeared in The New Yorker.) Eric helped to set up and was the first director of the publishing program at Ryerson University. He lives in Toronto.
