In his third novel, Norman Ravvin writes about a father and his young son, and the companionship they develop at home and on the road. Returning to the wanderlust of his travelogue Hidden Canada and to the European Jewish past that often underwrites his characters’ lives, Ravvin follows the interconnections of urban living, the experience of travel and abandonment, and a man’s love of neighbourhoods, of jazz and old cars
