Overview


Offering an intimate portrait of the last years of Sinclair Ross's often beleaguered life, this elegant account of an artist in decline—crippled by Parkinson's Disease and a sense of failure, attracted to suicide and his own sexual revelations—leads readers to a new biographical reading of one of Canada's most acclaimed novels, As for Me and My House. As a homosexual, Sinclair Ross grew up behind his own false front on the prairies, developing after the war into a more cosmopolitan man than previously imagined.
