About this title

Synopsis:

<p>The only writer ever to win both the Pulitzer Prize and Pen/Faulkner Award for a single novel (<em>Independence Day</em>) Richard Ford follows the completion of his acclaimed Bascombe trilogy with <em>Canada</em>. After a five-year hiatus, an undisputed American master delivers a haunting and elemental novel about the cataclysm that undoes one teenage boy&#x2019;s family, and the stark and unforgiving landscape in which he attempts to find grace.</p><p>A powerful and unforgettable tale of the violence lurking at the heart of the world, Richard Ford&#x2019;s <em>Canada</em> will resonate long and loud for readers of stark and sweeping novels of American life, from the novels of Cheever and Carver to the works of Philip Roth, Charles Frazier, Richard Russo, and Jonathan Franzen.</p>

From the Back Cover:

<p><em>&quot;First, I'll tell about the robbery our parents committed. Then about the murders, which happened later.&quot;</em></p><p>When fifteen-year-old Dell Parsons' parents rob a bank, his sense of normal life is forever altered. In an instant, this private cataclysm drives his life into before and after, a threshold that can never be uncrossed.</p><p>His parents' arrest and imprisonment mean a threatening and uncertain future for Dell and his twin sister, Berner. Willful and burning with resentment, Berner flees their home in Montana, abandoning her brother and her life. But Dell is not completely alone. A family friend intervenes, spiriting him across the Canadian border, in hopes of delivering him to a better life. There, afloat on the prairie of Saskatchewan, Dell is taken in by Arthur Remlinger, an enigmatic and charismatic American whose cool reserve masks a dark and violent nature.</p><p>Undone by the calamity of his parents' robbery and arrest, Dell struggles under the vast prairie sky to remake himself and define the adults he thought he knew. But his search for grace and peace only moves him nearer to a harrowing and murderous collision with Remlinger, an elemental force of darkness.</p><p>A true masterwork of haunting and spectacular vision from one of our greatest writers, <em>Canada</em> is a profound novel of boundaries traversed, innocence lost and reconciled, and the mysterious and consoling bonds of family. Told in spare, elegant prose, both resonant and luminous, it is destined to become a classic.</p>
