THE OUTSIDE WORLD 2014 TRILLIUM FINALIST
Tue Jul 22, 2014

Through the eyes of fourteen-year-old Robby Tedley, we meet a family living on a "perfectly normal suburban street" in the late 1960's - but of course there's nothing normal about them. Robby's mother is too terrified to venture beyond the front door, and his father, who works at the local Texaco, is oblivious to his wife's mental illness. Illustrating the fragility of humans set against the rapid currents of mordern life, Dempster displays a sure hand with character, setting and narrative, revelling in the desperate conflicts that lie between the people we know and love, and can't escape.
