'David McFadden travels around Newfoundland. Who knows which was most charmed
'In 'An Innocent in Ireland' (1995) and 'An Innocent in Scotland' (1999), poet and traveller David McFadden let the spirit of the country and his own interests guide his rambles. He has now done the same in Newfoundland.
Zigzagging across the province in his rented car, he charts an erratic course, admiring lawn sculpture (in his opinion a new local art), visiting fellow poets and publishers, wandering at dusk among the Viking mounds at L Anse aux Meadows, rooming with a Salvation Army family in a distant outport (and discovering a family tragedy), hanging on in a stiff wind to watch birds nesting on a cliff face, and enjoying the social life in countless bars and restaurants.
It soon becomes clear that McFadden s love of a good chat is shared widely by the people he meets in Newfoundland and he is wise enough to let them tell their own stories. For, as ever, his interest is in the heart of a place and not just its scenery.
Alert, somewhat eccentric, always ready to amuse and be amused, David McFadden is an ideal travelling companion.'
