"Edson’s vivid portrayal of the urban area, as well as the working class and underclass, creates a vision of Saint John that highlights the discrepancy between the pre-modern idyllic notion of life in Atlantic Canada and the more complicated reality of the region."

You just have to go on when it is worst and most helpless -- there is only one thing to do to a novel and that is go straight on through to the end of the damn thing.
--Ernest Hemingway in a letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1929

This how I'm feeling these days...I'm nearing the end of my rewrite for The Moon is Real and it's been a while -- more than a year now -- so the next six months will be putting my head down and just getting it done.
