From Giller Prize winner Johanna Skibsrud, a "compassionate and beautiful" (Globe and Mail) story of families changed forever by the upheavals of history
     The year is 1932, and America is roiling with unrest. Arthur and Douglas Sinclair, a World War I veteran and his son, join a group of impoverished ex-soldiers marching on Washington. Alden and Sutton Kelly, the rebellious children of a powerful Washington judge, become involved with the veterans' struggle, causing an irreparable rift in the Kelly family. When the march explodes in a violent clash between government and veteran forces, Arthur is falsely accused of conspiracy and disappears. The lives of Douglas, Alden, and Sutton are forever changed--linked inextricably by the absence of Arthur Sinclair.
     Taking us on an unforgettable journey through individual experience and memory against the backdrop of seismic historical events, Quartet for the End of Time is both a profound meditation on human nature and an astonishing literary accomplishment from one of Canada's most original voices.
