Product description

Review

“An epic tale of oil and its obsessions, stretching from the Arctic Circle to the humid swamps of the Niger Delta, from West Texas to the plains of Southern Alberta. Muscular and gritty, yet steeped in the intimate strata of the human heart.” —Will Ferguson, Scotiabank Giller Prize–winning author of 419

“A rig hand become petro-millionaire follows his oil hunger to the continental edges. Don Gillmor’s novel is fast-moving and smart, and his prose has a keen edge.” —Fred Stenson, author of Who by Fire
 
Long Change is a jackpot of a novel: a century-spanning epic of glittering riches, dangerous gambles, and dark, combustible secrets that bubble just below the surface. Don Gillmor has long been one of the country’s best journalists; now he affirms his place as one of its best novelists.” —Adam Sternbergh, author of Shovel Ready and Near Enemy
 
“The interior life of an oil man—what a daring book. Ritt Devlin is a decent, stalwart, sympathetic public enemy with an intuitive understanding of the earth’s depths but legitimate questions about his own. A novel to take you places you fear to go.” —Padma Viswanathan, Scotiabank Giller Prize finalist for The Ever After of Ashwin Rao 

“[A]n ambitious book. . . . It’s a testament to Gillmor’s writing that these stories . . . are as real and exciting in his novel as they would be if I were hearing them from a driller on a slow day. . . . The action in the novel is relentless . . . you can allow yourself to be pulled from page to page, confident that you won’t be kept waiting for a payoff.” —The Globe and Mail
 
Long Change displays Gillmor’s talents for beautiful prose, strong storytelling and character development.” —Winnipeg Free Press
 
Long Change, the new novel from acclaimed Toronto writer Don Gillmor, starts with a bang. . . . [It] is an intimate epic, a tightly focused personal narrative set against one of the most powerful economic forces of the twentieth century. Like Gillmor’s last novel, Mount Pleasant, Long Change explores the intersection of money and life, the heady false promises of success and the bitter inevitability of failure. In the new novel, the canvas is broader, the stakes higher. . . . Long Change is a window into a world which few readers will have really considered, a deeply embedded critique not only of the oil industry—certainly a ripe subject for such examination—but of the North American myth of success, a warning of the shaky ground where money overshadows and subverts passion, the quicksand where dreams slowly suffocate, long before the bullets start to fly.” —Robert J Wiersema, National Post

About the Author

DON GILLMOR is the author of the bestselling, award-winning two-volume Canada: A People's History, and two other books of non-fiction. His debut novel, Kanata, was published to critical acclaim, and his second novel, Mount Pleasant, published in 2013, was a national bestseller. Another groundbreaker for Gillmor, it was described by the Toronto Star as "a near-perfect satire of the faltering lives of Toronto's no-longer-young yuppies. Funny to the point it hurts, because it's all so true." Gillmor has also written nine books for children, two of which were nominated for a Governor General's Literary Award, and he is one of Canada's most accomplished journalists. He lives in Toronto with his wife and two children.
