Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0968578462, Paperback)In Westsiders, Finn gives us sketches from the social fabric showing the subtle influence of the American presence in Newfoundland in the 1940s and 50s. In the tradition of James Joyce and Stephen Leacock, yet emergent from the rocky soil of Newfoundland, psychology and philosophy is bound up in the day-to-day lives of those who lived in old Corner Brook West and beyond: -- drama, relationships, desire and delusion.-- Behind these ardent, tragicomic lives there emerges, like a ship in the mist, a recognition of ourselves. Before joining Canada in 1949, Newfoundland was a British colony. Corner Brook West was the old town, whereas the new Townsite was established to house workers and services for the Amercan papermill.
