House of Hate

by Percy Janes

Breakwater Books Ltd. | Mass Market Paperbound

House of Hate is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
The destructive family can tu upon itself is the theme of this powerful work, which has in the words of Margaret Laurence, become a classic of its kind. Set in the stark, confining atmosphere of a Newfoundland milltown, this semi-autobiographical novel tells the story of the Stone family-caught in relentless poverty and tyranized by Saul Stone, an illiterate man whose primitive fury warps and twists his wife and children. A brilliant portrayal of existence bereft of tende ess, House of Hate is a Tale of human ordeal and of an anguished striving for love in the midst of bitte ess. It is, as Farley Mowet has observed, a book unique in Canadian Literature. Percy Janes is a Canadian author who was raised in Newfoundland and retu ed there to live after extended travels in Europe.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Written Wonderfully challenging book to read about a family imbedded in abuse growing up and returning home after time away, set in Newfoundland. The amazing aspect it demonstrates is how people cling to the littlest hope or are suspect of warmth and how awareness does not come to all family members. I recommend this book on many levels.
