Choyce has crafted an impressive novel about the power of the sea, the power of community and the power of memory. And he also happens to have told a fine love story.

Charles may be broken, but his hometownand the ocean itself seem to live and breathe.A great vacation book, one to take to thebeach or to curl up with by the fireplace.
One of Canada’s finest storytellers, Lesley Choyce’s, latest — Broken Man on a Halifax Pier — is warm, witty and wise … an engaging and entertaining tale of trial and triumph that speaks to the soul and spirit of the Maritimes.
Stephen Patrick Clare, editor, Celtic Life International
Broken Man on a Halifax Pier is a rollicking delight of a novel by Nova Scotia’s prolific chronicler of the clash between old ways and new ways, and how romance and reality cohabit for better or worse. Funny, heartbreaking, self-effacing, and spot-on, Broken Man shows why the voice of Lesley Choyce is straight-up iconic.
