The Drawer Boy

Miles, a naive actor from Toronto, turns up at a remote farm run by two men: the rug- gedly practical Morgan and the simple-minded Angus. Along with his fellow actors, Miles is collecting stories about rural life in order to make a play. rough patient research, and a good deal of eavesdropping, Miles uncovers the true story of the two farmer's lives: as school and wartime buddies, Morgan and Angus were stationed in Britain in the 1940s, where they met their future brides. Angus su ered brain damage during the Blitz, and the foursome returned to Ontario to live out their rural dream. When the farmers let the city-boy into their home, Miles' search for a story gradually unearths a devastating truth that threatens to destroy the tranquil lives of his hosts forever. Beautifully written, funny and moving, e Drawer Boy is a multi-award-winning bitter sweet tale of the power of storytelling, friendship, and the very thin line between truth and fiction.
