Twenty-four-year-old James Thompson is in trouble. His record company is waiting for his third album, but Thompson has a good old case of writer's block. In Home Movies, the remarkable debut novel by Ray Robertson, Thompson travels from Toronto to his small hometown of Datum, Ontario, where he finds all the material he needs to write songs from his eccentric family and the seductive 19-year-old aspiring poetess, Melissa.
