Abstract:

"One person’s experiences coming of age in the 1970s and 80s among the small towns and steel cities of the rugged Canadian Shield, Arcadia Borealis is a funny, sad, and deeply reflective meditation on time, change, and the meaning of home. A linked series of self-contained essays that move from hockey cards and comic books to Black Sabbath and The Exorcist, and from classmates and neighbour kids to drug dealers and drinking buddies, its real subject is memory: looking back on a life transformed, on the people who shared part of the journey and the bittersweet perspectives of the journey’s end."--back cover.

"George Case is funny, nostalgic, and unsparing, with full command of his voice, in this narrative of life in the Soo in the mid-80s when the plant was having difficulty and the economy was spiraling. ... In the end, he feels the Soo is not only a good place to come from, but a good place to live in."--F.G. Paci (review).
