Artist Evan Macdonald's paintings chronicling the destruction of Guelph's historical buildings in the 1950s and 60s both celebrate industrial progress and lament the loss of nineteenth-century craftsmanship. This title chronicles his life and work from the perspective of his daughter.

There is an intimacy, a quiet fierceness in a daughter s watching of her father. A "looking upto" that escapes language, a stirring in and out of light and dark that gathers among silver mines, walks the edges of Hope Bay, and traces architectural ruins of memory and return. With narratives sketches, Flora Macdonald Spencer revisits and awakens the temporal spaces of Evan Macdonald, to tell what has not been told of her father s lie, a painter s life. - Sorouja Moll, writer, playwright and MA candidate, School of English & Theatre Studies, University of Guelph, Ontario"
