Just Let Me Look at You
Publisher: Hamish Hamilton
Sons clash with fathers, sons find reasons to rebel. And, fairly or unfairly, sons judge fathers when they take to drinking. But Bill Gaston and his father could always fish together. Returning to the past in his old fishing boat, Bill unravels his father’s relationship with his father, it too a story marked by heavy drinking, one that took a much darker turn.
Bill Gaston is the author of seven novels and seven collections of short fiction, as well as a book of poems and a memoir. His fiction has been shortlisted for the Giller Prize and the Governor General’s Award. His novel, The World, won the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize.
