Omschrijving

In 1954, in the cookhouse of a logging and sawmill settlement in northern New Hampshire, an anxious twelve-year-old boy mistakes the local constable s girlfriend for a bear. Both the twelve-year-old and his father become fugitives, forced to run from Coos County to Boston, to southern Vermont, to Toronto pursued by the implacable constable. Their lone protector is a fiercely libertarian logger, once a river driver, who befriends them. In a story spanning five decades, Last Night in Twisted River John Irving s twelfth novel depicts the recent halfcentury in the United States as a living replica of Coos County, where lethal hatreds were generally permitted to run their course. From the novel s taut opening sentence The young Canadian, who could not have been more than fifteen, had hesitated too long to its elegiac final chapter, Last Night in Twisted River iswritten with the historical authenticity andemotional authority of The Cider House Rules and A Prayer for Owen Meany. It isalso as violent and disturbing a story as John Irving s breakthrough bestseller, The World According to Garp. What further distinguishes Last Night in Twisted River is the author s unmistakable voice the inimitable voice of an accomplished storyteller. Near the end of this moving novel, John Irving writes: We don t always have a choice how we get to know one another. Sometimes, people fall into our lives cleanly as if out of the sky, or as if there were a direct flight from Heaven to earth the same sudden way we lose people, who once seemed they would always be part of our lives.
