Baltimore's Mansion by Wayne Johnston

$8.00

Baltimore's Mansion introduces us to the Johnstons of Ferryland, a Catholic colony founded by Lord Baltimore in the 1620s on the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland, and centres on three generations of fathers and sons. Filled with heart-stopping description and a cast of stubborn, acerbic, yet utterly irresistible family members, it is an evocation of a time and a place reminiscent of Wayne Johnston's best fiction.

Review:

"A beautiful, heartfelt, funny and engrossing book...Teems with exquisitely drawn pictures of a singular, pungent world before, during and after irreversible change, and through them weaves a delicate rendering of the often difficult love among three generations of fathers and sons." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"Baltimore's Mansion is an absorbing evocation of time and place, elegantly and passionately written. In this memoir, a multi-generational story of a Newfoundland family born to the hardships of life on the eastern Avalon peninsular, Wayne Johnston holds the very idea of what does and what does not constitute a country up to a clear, remarkable light. Baltimore's Mansion speaks eloquently about the loss of a way of life, and of many Newfoundlanders' failed, if not doomed, dreams of nationhood. It holds the reader's imagination with fabulous and beautifully wrought descriptions, with moments of high comedy and great poignance and, most importantly, with the magic of Johnston's storytelling." -- Charles Taylor Prize Committee

Paperback, 2000, 272pages, good condition
