Valentine Schwartz had it all: his girlfriend was the most beautiful girl in school, he came from a rich family, and his best friend, Huddie Rosen, all but worshipped him. Though Valentine wasn’t the brightest and was known for making mistakes, no one could have foreseen him falling off the roof of his high school in a suit of medieval armour, and dying at the tender age of seventeen. Huddie Rosen moves on. He travels to Tennessee and falls in love with bluegrass music. It leads him to a new life in Europe where he starts a family. But when his family life goes sour, Huddie decides to return to Toronto.

As he reconnects with his old friends, he finds himself wrapped up in their lives. It’s a wonder anyone was able to live without him. And as his old and new lives begin to clash, he finds himself wondering which life is better.

Cary Fagan is the author of Valentine’s Fall (finalist for the Toronto Book Award), The Mermaid of Paris, Felix Roth and other novels as well as many books for children. His short story collection My Life Among the Apes was longlisted for the 2012 Scotiabank Giller Prize. His short stories have been included in Best Canadian Stories and other anthologies. His writing has received two Jewish Book Awards, a Mr. Christie Silver Medal, and many other awards and nominations. Cary Fagan lives in Toronto with his family.

“[Cary Fagan is] a fine literary craftsman.” - Canadian Jewish News

Valentine’s Fall has a strong current of humour and absurdity amid the pensive melancholy.” - Winnipeg Free Press
