(No reviews yet) Write a Review
A very special book full of humour, irony, reminiscences, nostalgia. Marty Gervais is a master story teller and successfully brings small town life and its people back to life in these sketches. The son of an auto worker, Marty was raised a staunch Roman Catholic in Wondsor, Ontario a border town in the shadow of Detroit. He witnessed the transformations that took place between the conservativism of the 1950's to the optimism and turmoil of the 1960's. Gervais has always been a keen and insightful chronicler of his times, and Afternoons with the Devil: Growing up Catholic in a Border Town brings together his best writing about those early decades.
