These are stories of first rites: hunting accidents, sibling rivalry, infatuation, death in the family, romantic breakups, sustaining friendships, and the yearning for love, laughs, and understanding. The storyline is one of the oldest in literature -- that of a young man making sense of the world and choosing his place in it.And part of his place in the world is as a writer. In One Last Good Look Gabriel English works on a novel (This All Happened). Michael Winter tells his story in an intimate, compassionate way: his love for vivid detail, dialogue and humour come pouring through every line.
