Condemned as a murderer for killing the man who dishonored his sister, Blaine "Mick" McFadden has spent the last six years in Velant, a penal colony in the frigid northern wastelands of Edgeland. Harsh military discipline and the oppressive magic of the governor's mages keep a fragile peace as colonists struggle against a hostile environment. But the supply ships from Dondareth have stopped coming, boding ill for the kingdom that banished the colonists. Now, McFadden and the people of Velant decide their fate. They can remain in their icy prison, removed from the devastation of the outside world, but facing a subsistence-level existence, or they can return to the ruins of the kingdom that they once called home.
Either way, destruction lies ahead...
The author of City Unique takes us back to the wicked old Montreal of 1948 in this fine, funny novel, where an innocent seventeen-year-old McGill student falls for a famous stripper “Catcher in the Rye meets Guys and Dolls”? Maybe. Or how about “Evelyn Waugh’s Decline and Fall comes to Mordecai Richler’s Montreal”? Close. But best of all is simply this: “William Weintraub — friend of Richler, Moore, and Gallant — has quietly produced a mature comic masterpiece.” Our hero, Richard Lippman, is about to enter McGill and is desperate for two things — a sense of direction in life and, much more important, sexual experience with a real, live girl. Unknown to his “refined” Westmount parents, he’s brought into the exciting Montreal world of burlesque and brothels by his Uncle Morty, who introduces him to Lili L’Amour, the star stripper of the day. Before you know it, he’s (a) head over heels in love with Lili and (b) using his poetic talents to write the text for her routine, and even giving her tips on how to move. Much follows, including his creation of “Freckles, The Girl Next Door,” a stripping sensation. By day a respectful McGill student courted by campus Communists, by night a free-spending night-club sampler and reviewer — well, it’s quite a year for Richard. And this is quite a novel for all of us. Watch for falling prizes.

Por meados de século XIX os vastos espaços do Oeste americano foram abertos aos emigrantes, isto sem respeitar os tratados que garantiam aos índios a integridade dos seus territórios de caça. Então, as tribos peles-vermelhas ergueram-se e desenterram A Acha de Guerra. Sioux, cheyennes e apaches lançaram-se ao combate, e entre eles destacaram-se guerreiros que ficariam célebres, como Red Cloud, Sitting Bull, Cochise e Gerónimo. Luta feroz, sem mercê, no decorrer da qual a boa fé dos índios chocou demasiadas vezes na duplicidade dos brancos. Durante perto de cinquenta anos, das planícies do Dakota às «sierras» do Novo México, duas civilizações se defrontaram, uma ainda na idade da pedra, a outra já na idade da máquina. A segunda triunfaria finalmente, em nome do progresso, mas a despeito da justiça e da honra. Contracapa
