More Information: Tyler's Cape is a first novel by Nova Scotial-born Ottawa 
writer Darren Greer.  Tyler's Cape is set in rural Nova Scotia, and 
narrated by Luke Conrad who upon his return home from Halifx to take care 
of his elderly mother recounts the often-mysterious history of his 
family.  Blending humour, pathos and a stark, realistic portrayal of 
growing up on the Nova Scotian South Shore, the novel explores a fifty year 
relationship between three brothers and examines the difficult yet enduring 
nature of family.
About the Author: Darren Greer is the author of several professionally 
produced plays and a number of short stories, poems and non-fiction 
articles published in Canada and the United States.  He is also a 
well-known national AIDS activist and has written extensively on AIDS, 
social and Aboriginal issues.  He just returned from protesting the FTAA in 
Quebec City and has quite a bit to say about it!
