9780099559375: Fourth of July Creek

Dans le Montana, en 1980.
Autour de Pete, assistant social dévoué, gravite tout un monde d'écorchés vifs et d'âmes déséquilibrées. Il y a Beth, son ex infidèle et alcoolique, Rachel, leur fille de treize ans, en fugue dans les bas-fonds de Tacoma, Luke, son frère, recherché par la police.
Et puis il y a Cecil l'adolescent violent et sa mère droguée et hystérique, et ce jeune Benjamin, qui vit dans les bois environnants, avec son père, Jeremiah Pearl, un illuminé persuadé que l'apocalypse est proche, que la civilisation n'est que perversion et que le salut réside dans la survie et l'anarchie. Pearl qui s'est exclu de la société, peut-être par paranoïa, peut-être aussi pour cacher qu'il aurait tué son épouse et leurs cinq enfants.
Au milieu de cette cour des miracles, Pete pourrait être l'ange rédempteur, s'il n'était pas lui-même complètement perdu...

From the Back Cover:

After trying to help Benjamin Pearl, an undernourished, nearly feral eleven-year-old boy living in the Montana wilderness, social worker Pete Snow comes face-to-face with the boy's profoundly disturbed father, Jeremiah. With courage and caution, Pete slowly earns a measure of trust from this paranoid survivalist itching for a final conflict that will signal the coming End Times.

But as Pete's own family spins out of control, Pearl's activities spark the full-blown interest of the FBI, putting Pete at the center of a massive manhunt from which no one will emerge unscathed.

In this shattering and iconic American novel, Smith Henderson explores the complexities of freedom, community, grace, suspicion, and anarchy, brilliantly depicting our nation's disquieting and violent contradictions. Fourth of July Creek is an unforgettable, unflinching debut that marks the arrival of a major literary talent.
