Still Life In The Old Dog



A tale from American award-winning essayist, poet and undertaker Thomas Lynch, set in the far North of his home state, Michigan.

The Upper Peninsula is sparsely populated, heavily forested and has long cold snowy winters. It's home to Doyle Shields who, at the grand age of 90, has more life behind him than ahead. But when his reverie on the end of days is interrupted by a visit from Emma, he realises he's still ready to risk one last chance at love.
