From the Publisher
""First, I?ll tell about the robbery our parents committed. Then
the murders, which happened later.?
So begins Canada, the unforgettable story of Dell
Parsons, a young man forced by catastrophic circumstances to
reconcile himself to a world rendered unrecognizable. Spirited
across the Montana border into Saskatchewan and taken in by Arthur
Remlinger, an enigmatic man whose own past exists on the other side
of the border, Dell struggles to understand what his future can be
even as he comes to understand the violence simmering below the
surface in his new life.
In this brilliant novel, set largely in Saskatchewan, Richard
Ford has created a masterwork. Haunting and spectacular in vision,
Canada is a novel rich with emotional clarity and lyrical
precision, and an acute sense of the grandeur of living. It is a
classic-in-the-making from one of our time?s greatest writers.
