Can you make love to a ghost? Can two girls crawl through a sewer to save pigs from slaughter? Do monuments to the dead live? This book is the second of the greater work that begins with the novel,... More > & after this our exile. There, veterans of the First World War and their families fight to stay alive in postwar Toronto; here, the same cast of characters, some alive, some not, travel back to France to open the Vimy Memorial in 1936.
