Plain but charismatic Del is the ringleader, unstoppable, supremely confident. Neil, shy and stuttering, and Ricky, full of rage and loneliness, are misfits until Del takes them under her wing. Steph is the outsider, but she, too, is mesmerized by Del. Together they muck about in the woods, search for treasure on the seashore, do dares, share cigarettes. Then, one terrible day, the gang is broken up for good.Ten years later, Neil, Ricky, and Steph revisit their childhood haunts and relive the memories that have cast a shadow over their lives. Del is the beating heart at the centre of their stories and, at the same time, a gaping absence.Revenant is a tour de force of sustained storytelling. In his Canadian debut, Tristan Hughes stitches together memories of childhoods and uncovers the secrets and betrayals of friendship with thoughtful, shocking brilliance.
