Product description

Review

"Here Comes the Dreamer is a moving account of how a tragic accident changes, and haunts, the intertwined lives of a painter, his gifted and troubled daughter, and the young woman who befriends them. It astutely probes the moods and mores of suburban America in the '50s and '60s, and later, of Toronto. Combining rich lyrical language, inspired narration, and sensitive psychological insight, this is fiction of the most darkly illuminating, deeply touching kind."--Allan Briesmaster"Giangrande's writing is warm and intelligent, honest and kind. Here Comes the Dreamer is filled with the richness of character and intersecting lives."--Irene Guilford, author of The Embrace
