Snow Man

$18.95




To leave your complex, tragic wartorn country only to find yourself a refugee in the safe but almost sterile world of a Canadian university can be an almost unbearably shocking experience. When arriving in his new city, his new university job, his new house, the narrator, a writer, feels an overwhelming strangeness and sense of distance from his surroundings.

This brilliantly written account of the loss of meaning and reality, which can accompany the dislocation caused by war and the need to leave one's home behind is gripping, moving and heartbreakingly beautiful.
