Toronto : Knopf Canada, 2023.
"From the Giller Prize-winning author comes a novel, witty and wise, about thwarted ambition, unrealized dreams, the enduring bonds of female friendship, and love's capacity to surprise us at any age. In the winter of 2008, as snow falls without interruption, an actor in a Beckett play can't remember her lines. Fleeing the theatre, she beats a retreat into her past and arrives at Snow Road Station, a barely discernible dot on the map of Ontario. The actor is Lulu Blake, in her sixties now, a sexy, seemingly unfooled older woman well-versed in taking risks. Out of work and humiliated, she enters the last act of her life wondering what she can make of this diminished thing. In Snow Road Station she decides she is through with drama, but as it turns out, drama isn't through with her. She thinks she wants peace. It turns out she wants more. Looming in the background is that autumn's global financial meltdown, while in the foreground a cast of returning characters from His Whole Life animates a round of weddings, sap harvests, love affairs, and family turmoil. At the centre of it all is a friendship between Lulu and Nan. As the two women contemplate growing old together they surrender old ambitions and dreams, confronting the limits of the choices they made and the messy feelings that kept them apart for decades."--
