In Hard Light, Michael Crummey retells and reinvents his father's stories of outport Newfoundland and the Labrador fishery of a half century ago. Speaking through generations of storytellers, he conjures a world of hard toil and heavy weather, shot through with stoicism, grim humour, endurance, and love. This is writing that is supple and charged with intensity, language that vivifies --- electrifies --- whoever and whatever it describes.

"Michael Crummey's lucid, dexterous writing shies away from nothing, gives us the concrete particulars of daily life, the burials and butcheries, the night-time thoughts. He knows this world from the inside." -- John Steffler

An incredibly amazing piece of Canadian literature. Hard light took me through the full range of emotions,from sadness, chuckle to out wright laughter. For the nostalgic of a time when life was hard but it kept people together .A must read or even better listen as it,s also available as an audio book.
