A love story in which a faded old queen finds his life slipping away from him along with his young lover, who meets a new, younger man

Bryden MacDonald says: "One day when I was sitting in a tiny little basement bar I noticed a man sitting alone at the bar - an elegant old queen with snowy white hair perfectly sculpted around his translucent face

His eyes could have been any colour ... they were empty. He remained very still, holding a brandy snifter with great reverence while a steady stream of tears flowed down his cheeks

I suddenly found myself inventing his history, wondering what it must have been like for him growing up gay - maybe in a small fishing village on the east coast. Had he been ridiculed by his peers? Disowned by his parents?

Did he run to a big city at too early an age? This beautiful, unapproachable man at the bar had literally conjured Lyle, and that day Whale Riding Weather began to become a reality"

"Powerfully written ... succeeds mainly because of MacDonald's ability to create empathy for his emotionally hungry and interdependent characters ... The writer is the star here" ~ Toronto Star
