The only writer ever to win both the Pulitzer Prize and Pen/Faulkner Award for a single novel (Independence Day) Richard Ford follows the completion of his acclaimed Bascombe trilogy with Canada. After a five-year hiatus, an undisputed American master delivers a haunting and elemental novel about the cataclysm that undoes one teenage boy's family, and the stark and unforgiving landscape in which he attempts to find grace.

A powerful and unforgettable tale of the violence lurking at the heart of the world, Richard Ford's Canada 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.

Review:

"A triumph of voice.... The writing... is spare, but heartbreaking."--USA Today

"Richard Ford returns with one of his most powerful novels yet...Ford has never written better...Canada is Richard Ford's best book since Independence Day, and despite its robbery and killings it too depends on its voice, a voice oddly calm and marked by the spare grandeur of its landscape."--Daily Beast

"[R]obust and powerful... tap[s] into something momentous and elemental about the profound moral chaos behind the actions of seemingly responsible people... By depicting tragedies without deep roots in reason or purpose, Mr. Ford has dramatized the frightening discovery of the world's anarchic heart."--Wall Street Journal

"Pure vocal grace, quiet humor, precise and calm observation."--The New Yorker

"A magnificent work of Montana gothic that confirms his position as one of the finest stylists and most humane storytellers in America...Ford has left the suburbs of New Jersey two thousand miles away and delivered his most elegiac and profound book."--Washington Post

"["Canada"]confirms his position as one of the finest stylists and most humane storytellers in America... his most elegiac and profound book..."--Washington Post

"Awe-inspiring... The laconic, grief-stricken voice of Dell, looking back on his past, trying to make some kind sense of what happened when his family imploded, keeps you turning pages, as do the quiet, thought-provoking revelations that Ford drops in throughout."--O, the Oprah Magazine

"Robust and powerful... Ford is able to tap into something momentous and elemental about the profound moral chaos behind the actions of seemingly responsible people... Ford has dramatized the frightening discovery of the world's anarchic heart."--Wall Street Journal

"Masterly... in Ford's American tragedy, filled with lost innocence and inevitable violence--a rusting carnival, a rabbit caught in a coyote's jaws--geography feels a lot like fate."--Vogue

"Marvelous..."Canada" is a masterpiece of a story with rich language and dialogue filled with suspense, bleakness, human frailties and flaws, and a little bit of hope seen through the eyes of an adolescent boy whose emotions seem often aligned with the desolate landscape of its setting."--The Oregonian (Portland)

Book Description Ecco. 1 Cloth(s), 2012. hard. Condition: New. "First, I'll tell about the robbery our parents committed. Then about the murders, which happened later." In this haunting novel from the author of the Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner Award winner Independence Day, 15-year-old Dell Parsons veers into a rootless, turbulent future after his parents rob a North Dakota bank in 1960. His twin sister Berner, fierce with resentment, flees for California, while a family friend spirits Dell across the Canadian border toward safety and a better life. Adrift on the Saskatchewan prairie, however, Dell finds only cold refuge with Arthur Remlinger, an enigmatic and alluring American fugitive with a violent past."This is a brilliant and engrossing portrait of a fragile American family and the fragile consciousness of a teenage boy. It is also fascinating in the way it reveals the plot in the opening page and then winds backwards, offering a more and more intimate version of the story."—Colm Tóibín"In [Richard] Ford's American tragedy, filled with lost innocence and inevitable violence—a rusting carnival, a rabbit caught in a coyote's jaws—geography feels a lot like fate."—Vogue 420.
