It is one of those rare novels that readers describe as having "changed my life." First published in the early 1970s, The Weekend Man immediately established Richard B. Wright as a fresh and powerful new voice in North American fiction. Now, with his 1995 double nomination for the Giller Prize and the Governor General's Award for The Age of Longing, Richard B. Wright continues to connect strongly with his audience.

A textbook publishing salesman whose life seems poised continually on the verge of free-fall, 30-year-old Wes Wakeham waffles between fighting the sad nostalgia of his past and the certain failure of his future. Shot through with the ironies of urban life, love and lust. The Weekend Man is as relevant in the '90s as it was in the '70s.
