AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"Tom Leyton, a reclusive Vietnam veteran, has been the subject of gossip and rumour for thirty years. When Joseph Davidson, his young neighbour and a talented artist, is asked to draw a portrait of him, an uneasy relationship begins to unfold, one that will force each of them to confront his darkest secrets. This a story about how we perceive others, the judgements we make about them, how we cope with tragedy, and the nature of miracles." (Source: Author's website)

Notes

  • Dedication: For my family, especially my wife Adriana, my children Meg and Joseph, my parents Elsie and Denis, my sisters Helen and Cathy and my brother Rob - and for the Running Man in us all.
  • Epigraph: What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen. Henry David Thoreau.
