While a student at the University of Toronto, Peter spends a summer working in England, at a hotel in Knightsbridge. Covent Gardens, Greenwich Park, the Thames itself, all become part of his life, as do coworkers who, like Peter, are mostly passing through London. When he returns to Toronto, the people he knew in London echo within him, especially Anne, who more than anyone, slipped behind his defenses and challenged him to hold onto life as though it meant something. Set in 1990s London and Toronto, Festival is about living your life, instead of watching it slip away.

And that is why Festival is a novel that should be read and loved.
