About this title

Synopsis:

From the bestselling author of The Shipping News comes Postcards, the tale of the Blood family, New England farmers who must confront the twentieth century -- and their own extinction. As the family slowly disintegrates, its members struggle valiantly against the powerful forces of loneliness and necessity, seeking a sense of home and place forever lost.
Loyal Blood, eldest son, is forced to abandon the farm when he takes his lover's life, thus beginning a quintessentially American odyssey of solitude and adventure. Yearning for love, yet forced by circumstance to be always alone, Loyal comes to symbolize the alienation and frustration behind the American dream.

Review:

Frederick Busch

"Chicago Tribune"

A novel that feels like a fifth or sixth, not a first. This richly talented writer announces with "Postcards" that we had better, from now on, be listening for her voice...astonishingly accomplished.
