The setting of Larkin on the Shore is a small town on the north shore of Nova Scotia, looking out over the Northumberland Strait towards Prince Edward Island.
I know this place well, because I have a summer home in Pugwash and spend three or four months there every year. Larkin’s story was born there and written there. It’s a special place for me – magic, really. So here you go. Let me share some scenes from Larkin’s – and my – shore.
