1959, Ameliasburgh, Prince Edward County, Canada. On the edge of spring, two men are finishing an A-frame cabin on Roblin Lake. In the coming decade all three of them—Al, Milt, and the A-frame—will become famous and change the face of Canadian poetry. But now all they have is the stench of sweat, whiskey, and words. From Governor General’s Literary Award–winner David Yee, among men is a poetic and charged portrait of male friendship in uncertain times, and a story of how Canadian literature was changed forever.
“Masterful storytelling.”- Joe Szekeres, Our Theatre Voice
“David Yee has taken a footnote in Canadian literature and created a play that is raucous, lively, crude . . . and extremely moving.”- Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine
“A laugh-out-loud, moving piece of art.”- Janine Marley, A View From the Box
