Abstract:

"Moving from a small Portuguese fishing village in the Azores to the dark alleys of Toronto's Portuguese community in the 1970s, the narrative is split between Manuel Rebelo and his son, Antonio. Manuel has fled his homeland--and the crushing weight of his mother's expectations--to build a future for himself in a terra nova. Struggling to adjust, he realizes that the promise of his adopted land is not as simple as he had hoped. The second half of the book is told with wonderful candor by Manuel's son Antonio, who--along with his sister and mother--lives in the shadow cast by Manuel's father"--Cover, p. 4.
