9781594484056: The End

An incredible debut and National Book Award-nominated novel?it?s ?Memento meets Augie March. Didion meets Hitchcock? (Esquire).

It is August 15, 1953, the day of a boisterous and unwieldy street carnival in Elephant Park, an Italian immigrant enclave in northern Ohio. As the festivities reach a riotous pitch and billow into the streets, five members of the community labor under the weight of a terrible secret. As these floundering souls collide, one day of calamity and consequence sheds light on a half century of their struggles, their follies, and their pride. And slowly, it becomes clear that buried deep in the hearts of these five exquisitely drawn characters is the long-silenced truth about the crime that twisted each of their worlds.

Cast against the racial, spiritual, and moral tension that has given rise to modern America, this first novel exhumes the secrets lurking in the darkened crevices of the soul of our country. Inventive, explosive, and revelatory, The End introduces Salvatore Scibona as an important new voice in American fiction.

Review:

"A masterful novel set amid racial upheaval in 1950s America during the flight of second-generation immigrants from their once-necessary ghettos. Full of wisdom, consequence, and grace, Salvatore Scibona's radiant debut brims with the promise of a remarkable literary career, of which "The End" is only the beginning."
--Annie Dillard

"Lyrical...Bold...Beautiful."
-"The Boston Globe"
"Exquisitely rendered...Does not open up so much as catch and slowly reel in."
-"Los Angeles Times"
"Rhapsodic...Unflinching...Masterful...a novel unafraid to split into the breastplate of humankind and aim a floodlight at the demons dancing there."
-"Southern Review"
"Engulfing. Entangled. Fate-laden. Flinty."
- "Esquire"
"Precise yet inventive...[Scibona] fleshes out a scrabbling immigrant Cleveland."
-"The American Book Review"
"Like no other contemporary writer...A concordance of the immigrant experience from the beautiful to the brutal and everything in between."
-ZZ Packer, author of "Drinking Coffee Elsewhere"
"Possibly the only novel I've ever read that legitimately deserves to be called Bellovian. And that's no small claim."
-"Kenyon Review"
"Breathtaking...Think not only Faulkner, but also T.S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein and James Joyce."
- "Cleveland Plain Dealer"
