Richard B. Wright is a master at character development in his nine novels, and The Age of Longing is no exception. Howard Wheeler returns to his mother's home following her death to sell her house and its contents. As memories of his childhood unfold, his parents emerge for the reader as ordinary, flawed human beings. The magic of Richard B. Wright's writing is not the plots, but the way in which he depicts his characters leading unexceptional lives with insight and compassion. I think that he is one of Canada's finest authors.
