MAXINE (1995)

“Tom Walmsley, the author of stage plays such as White Boys and fictions such as Doctor Tin, turns his pen on his own family in Maxine, an agonized elegy for a sister who was too dear to lose, too wild to survive. The language is plain and severe, suspended somewhere between confession and accusation, and nowhere close to acceptance.

“Love stories don’t come more painful than this.”

—Robert Everett-Green, The Globe and Mail, February 27, 1995
