When a stranger crashes Hart Granger's 50th birthday party, the shock sends him reeling. Not only is this man from Vermont Hart's half-brother - the child their mother put up for adoption before she was married - he's also the bizarre incarnation of a lie Hart told his little sister when they were kids. "We had an older brother named Bill," teenaged Hart once whispered to five-year-old Amanda. "He had to leave the family to make room for you . . ." Set in Montreal, Los Angeles and Vancouver, Matters of Hart is a picaresque tale about sibling rivalry, and the joys and pains of family ties. The story is told first through the eyes of five women in Hart's life. Then his journal, scribbled while he crosses Canada by train, gives a wrenching confession of the winter he spends in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside caught up in the tragic destiny of a Cree painter. Finally, Hart makes a dramatic return to Montreal. Back from the dead, he's a changed man.
