Description
When 15-year-old Del Parsons's parents rob a North Dakota bank, his life crosses a threshold of no return into a rootless, turbulent future for him and his twin sister Berner, in this haunting novel from the author of the Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner Award winner Independence Day. Fierce with resentment, Berner flees their Montana home for California, while a family friend spirits Del across the Canadian border toward safety and a better life. Adrift on the Saskatchewan prairie, however, Del finds only cold refuge from 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
