SointulaeBook - 2004
At the heart of Sointula is Evelyn, a middle-aged woman who abandons her privileged existence. She throws away the trappings of her civilized life--her antidepressants and her air ticket home, her wallet and most of the clothes off her back--steals a kayak, and embarks on a quest that takes her deep into the wilderness. The goal: to find Tom--her strange, damaged son--in the remote village of Sointula. Equal parts light and dark, compassion and irony, this is Gaston's most mature work.
