Great Travel Reads – Canada

May 23rd, 2012

If you’re looking for a gripping read this summer, look no further than Independence Day author Richard Ford‘s new novel, Canada.

Hailed as a masterwork of haunting and spirited vision, Canada, tells the story of a young man faced with catastrophic adversity. Taking us from the ranges of Montana to the wilderness of Saskatchewan, Dell Parsons is forced to reconcile himself to a world rendered unrecognizable, and, accompanied by the enigmatic Arthur Remlinger, he struggles to understand what his future can be, even as he comes to understand the violence simmering below the surface of his new life.
