Nominated for the 1999 Giller Prize and winner of the Chapters/Books in Canada First Novel Prize, Summer Gone is set among the islands and lakes of Canada's cottage country.
Narrated by Eric Schneider, a familiar voice to CBC listeners for his radio work, it tells the stories of three generations of lost summers and of the characters that inhabited them: the girl in the blue bathing suit, the impenetrable and doomed camp councillor; the wife who comes alive to the rhythms of a cottage summer but who remains blind to the secret that will change her life irrevocably. The primary story is that of a divorced father and his young son, separated by estrangement and how the silence is broken.
From the Back Cover:
"Summer Gone is a remarkable achievement full of wit, intelligence, and humane charm. Its poise is unfaltering, holding firm between joy and heartache, innocence and understanding, life and loss. This book should not only be applauded but cherished. Macfarlane has achieved a perfect marriage of theme and structure -- [he] creates a narrative that flows with the grace and certainty of an eddy."
"Summer Gone is a homage to our most excruciating and beautiful memories. Within this novel is the marvellous height of summer, perfect and fleeting, a place and time we can never get enough of."
--The Globe and Mail (Canada)
"The writing is sharp and quick enough to cut through the rock of the Canadian Shield -- a wonderful trip."
"Summer Gone is a triumph of voice [and] storytelling."
