From the Publisher
E. Annie Proulx''s Accordion Crimes is a masterpiece of
storytelling that spans a century and a continent. Proulx brings
the immigrant experience in America to life through the eyes of the
descendants of Mexicans, Poles, Africans, Irish-Scots,
Franco-Canadians and many others, all linked by their successive
ownership of a simple green accordion. The music they make is their
last link with the past -- voice for their fantasies, sorrows and
exuberance. Proulx''s prodigious knowledge, unforgettable
characters and radiant language make Accordion Crimes a
stunning novel, exhilarating in its scope and originality.
