Nova Scotia by John Byrne

Book Description

Thirty years since we last met him and Lucille in the Garden of Remembrance, Phil McCann faces the New Millennium with fortitude and good humour. The leading arts correspondent of the day is on her way to the far north to record a radio profile, which Paul is confident will relaunch his career as a painter and establish him once and for all as a colossus of contemporary Caledonian culture. There are, however, a number of stumbling blocks on the road to Phil's rediscovery and the recognition of his genius, not least of which is his rocky marriage to much younger Didi, a video artist of some renown, who has just been nominated for the Turner Prize. Then there's the old pal, Spanky, who turns up out of the blue with new bride, Lucille, on his arm...Nova Scotia premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in April 2008.
