In 1939, a young piano tuner, Charlie Kilworth, faces two enigmatic questions: who was his father, and, given the madness which afflicts his mother, does he dare become a father himself? Drawing on the memories of those who knew his mother, and on the contents of the wicker suitcase which she carried everywhere, Charlie pieces together the story of his mother's life, and the madness in which she lives.

This Victorian-Gothic novel by the late Timothy Findley was short-listed for the 1995 Giller Prize. Based on the character of his aunt, and set in turn of the century Toronto, the themes of memory and madness make this family story a fascinating read.

I couldn't read past page 29. Too heady for light summer reading.
