9780062070166: Swing Low: A Life

In a small Canadian province, a schoolteacher, husband and father of three is engaged in a no-longer private battle. All his life, Miriam Toews' father has managed to reign in his manic depression, taming it through stringent routine and devotion to his work and family. In a masterpiece of literary empathy, Toews gracefully reconstructs her father's life, assuming his voice, his demons and his memories as she recreates the lonely path that led him to take his own life. A harrowing and ultimately beautiful hymn to a great man.
