This story captures all the power, laughter, joy, and stubborn resilience of those who populated the outports of yesteryear, back before they were drove from their homes by the fishing grounds to so-called growth centres. On All Souls night every year the dead of St. Kevin’s come alive and talk to each other. They bring us back to the golden age of the Newfoundland outport as every unique and every dynamic relationship is relived in their banter, their humour, and their fond remembrances. Al was one of our greatest writers of poetry, plays, songs, and short stories.
