    Canada AUTHOR Richard Ford [E–pub/E–book] I feel honored when a book teaches me something new about reading when a writer has the confidence in his story to pull no punches with his writing trusting in the reader’s intelligence to absorb a story without telling her what she should feel What Richard Ford teaches me with the exuisite Canada is patience He teaches me to pull back hold on allow the plot to reel out while keeping a closer eye on the characters and their act

Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Ford s latest novel beginsFirst I ll tell about the robbery our parents committed Then about the murders which happened laterReally could anyone read those lines and not want to see what follows Ford ently but steadily builds tension from the opening sentence when we know murders are coming to the event itself In the meantime we come to care about our narrator Dell Parsons and have a rooting interest in how he will fare once it does Richard Ford Image from Columbia UniversityPart One of the novel takes us through events up to and including the robbery after which Dell and his twin sister Berner are all but abandoned in their home in Great Falls Montana Surely a town name with some resonance Berner takes off leaving Dell to await rescue by a friend of their mother s In Part Two this woman offers Dell her New Directions in American Intellectual History gentle strength en route to a remote Saskatchewan backwater where she delivers him to her brother Arthur a charismatic person with a history of violence the biggest fish in a small local pond a king in a way Part Two is the meat of the book the part that Ford began writing twenty years ago Part One was written recently a mechanism foretting Dell across the border How much of who we are who we become is determined by where we find ourselves Is it the physical events of life that are the most significant Is it how we feel what we remember There is much here about crossing of lines whether African Immigrant Families in the United States: Transnational Lives and Schooling geographic boundaries or behavioral limits Once certain boundaries have been crossed can one evero home again Can one ever The House of Saulx-Tavanes: Versailles and Burgundy, 1700-1830 grow down What can any of us do if we misunderstand the world Dell struggles to understand as much as he can knowing that his father s misunderstanding of the world he found on his return from World War II contributed to his demise A peripatetic life certainly did not help Does such motion seek or escape Canada is a coming of age tale Dell is an introspective analytical fifteen year old with a penchant for chess and an interest in bee keeping He walks us through his thoughts as he tries not only to adapt to life which seems bent on buffeting him from place to place but specifically as he tries to figure out this latest home in which he finds himself On a broader landscape he tries to make sense of the world as a whole attempting to suss out the rules for living his parents neverot around to teaching him learning to discern moral differences and make decisions based on that understanding One specific image stood out for me Dell discovering the rusting remnants of a defunct carnival What an outstanding way to represent the end of innocenceIn addition to immersing us in the events of his fifteen year old life Dell speaks to us from the vantage point of a mature adult So we know at the very least that he survives But we do not know in what shape or situation Knowing this alters our concern level If we know that Dell will survive his ordeal there is that much less to be concerned about on his behalf It removes us a bit from the action and lets us ponder Dell s world the way he does But Ford does not let us float too far above the events and lose our affection for a kid just trying to figure things out He is a decent sort and we want him to be okMy exposure to Richard Ford is slim having only read The Sportswriter previously But it seems that Ford is working in familiar comfortable themes Examining one s life coping with expectations reasonable and not figuring out how to live in the world all told in beautiful language The physical world plays a larger role in this book a landscape Ford mines for bleak if dramatic resonance There are stark wide open spaces that mirror the open still forming character of young Dell and also serve to reinforce the harshness the remoteness of his dark protector Local wildlife is usually shown either as potential targets for hunters or in other battles for survival we saw a big coyote in the road with a rabbit in its mouth It paused and looked at our car approaching then walked into the tall wheat out of sight We saw what our father said was a The Bodhisattva's Brain : Buddhism Naturalized golden eagle poised in the perfectly blue sky being thwarted by crows wanting to drive it away We saw three magpies pecking a snake as it hurried toet across the pavement People are onna dieThe beautiful spare writing reminded me of Kent Haruf Plainsong and Eventide and David Malouf An Imaginary Life The Conversations at Curlow Creek There is a softness to the text Many years ago while driving north on the Henry Hudson Parkway in the Bronx I saw a vision that has haunted my dreams north on the Henry Hudson Parkway in the Bronx I saw a vision that has haunted my dreams since a car heading southbound on the other side of the divider with traffic but liding by on its roof There was no sound associated with this no crashing screeching horn blowing Ford s writing reminds me of this Serious things are oing on but without the noise The even tone makes the darkness the challenge somehow effective Always on the lookout for signposts maybe too much I found some items that led me nowhere but they were probably not really signs anyway Arthur Remlinger s assistant Charlie uarters clearly has homosexual tendencies but nothing much is made of this other than the discomfort it entails for Dell Naming seemed like it might offer some insight Dell s family name is Parsons One of the cops who arrest his parents is named Bishop And the Lutheran church across the street from their house crosses the stage for a scene or two but that thread peters out One might take the name of the town in which Dell finds himself Partreau which means plateau and see in this a high place from which Dell ets to observe and learn from those around him perhaps a reinforcement of Dell s intellectual approach above in a way It might just be a counterpoint to a character whose name means valley Or it could just be a place name toting no symbolic value Don t know Ford s selection of Saskatchewan was not specific When he was asked why he chose to send Dell there he said he had to o somewhere Ford had never been to Saskatchewan when he set his story thereNone of that matters Canada is an outstanding work of literature a beautiful stark book and an absolute must readPSI can t help but imagine Terence Malik oing to town on this one Please oh pleaseAlso I came across a lovely interview with Ford from early 2011 before he had finished writing the book A significant portion of the 54 minute audio recording addresses CanadaUPDATES6262012 Stephen Colbert did a wonderful short interview with Ford In which we learn among other things why he keep his manuscripts in the freezer Canada was awarded the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction for 2013 What an odd readThe antithesis of a thrillerThere are no surprises in this You know from the opening sentence that his parents are oing to rob a bank You know that there are oing to be murders You know in advance that his sister is oing to run away You know that he is oing to Canada Maybe some books are like a river tumbling down from the mountains fast paced athering speed sweeping all along on its rush to the sea But This Is A Book Like is a book like lazy stretch of water on the coastal plain meandering backtracking some parts stagnant some parts eddying around obstacles languid I can t even say this narrative is a slow reveal because it is all there teasing the reader to dip their toes in the water to find the depths of the narrative There were many times when I wanted to shake Dell and have him take a active role in his own life To me it wasn t a coming of age story because Dell never took this responsibility It had a stronger flavour of we are who we are and the impact of parenting Dell seemed to be just an observer too remote from his feelings to even be described as melancholy maybe pathologically innocent would be the closestIt is calm detailed teasingly repetitive bleak engrossing and annoying I am starting to feel sorry for those who reside in backwater towns across either America or Canada There always seem to be an unjust stigma attached for no fault of their own as to how they o about leading their lives And Richard Ford has done what countless other writers have done before him with the followingThere is a dangerous individual who lives in a trailer outs. 'This is a wonderfully evocative novel that delineates the essential fragility and loneliness of life Written in haunting sentences that capture the vicissitudes of fate and happenstance this is Ford's finest work to date; uite simply a masterpiece ★★★★★' Mail on Sunday First I'll tell about the robbery our parents committed Then about the murders which happened laterIt was bad instincts and bad luck that lead to Dell Parson’s parents robbing. Canada AUTHOR Richard FordTicipation for his arrival in San Francisco on tour My son had other plans He was born on the day of Ford s presentation One of my friends informed Richard Ford about this celebrated moment in my life and he signed and inscribed a book to my son The book resides in a bookshelf with a beautiful ornate lass door that had belonged to my randmother where I keep all the most precious books in my collection Ford s eyes are crisp pale blue that don t look at you but look through you I felt as if I didn t have to say a word and he could just aze at me and write my biography Richard FordNow there was a moment in the lives of the twins parents that I wish happened to married couples often Sometimes we all et so crushed by monotony Our marriages tend to Ratscalibur get whittled down to of a business arrangement than a relationship but there are these moments when we remember why we signed up for kids a mortgage and a soul sucking career I remember that night now as the best most natural time our family had that summer or any time Just for a moment I saw how life couldo forward on a steadier reliable course The two of them were happy and comfortable with each other My father appreciated the way my mother behaved toward him He paid her compliments on her clothes and her appearance and her mood It was as if they d discovered something that had once been there but had The Million Dollar Goal (The Million Dollar Series, gotten hidden or misunderstood or forgotten over time and they were charmed by it once and by one another Which seems only right and expectable for married people They caught alimpse of the person they fell in love with and who sustained lifeSometimes we just hang on to the wrong memories of each other Saskatchewan Prairie where Dell found himself relocatedDell Parsons found himself in Canada living in a stucco house with holes bigger than rats in the walls that necessitated him creatively piling boxes of someone else s leftover memories against the walls to keep the weather at bay He was under the The Selected Poems guidance of Arthur Remlinger a man long on charisma and haunted by shadowy moods He was colored by a violent past that chose that six weeks in the life of Dell Parsons to come explosively to light Dell had to assimilate uickly I hadn t been taught to assimilate a person perhaps assimilated without knowing it I was doing it now You did it alone and not with others or for them And assimilating possibly wasn t so hard and risky and didn t need to be permanent This state of mind conferred another freedom on me and was like starting life over or as I ve already said becoming someone else but someone who was not stalled but moving which was the nature of things in the world I could like it or hate it but the world would change around me no matter how I feltRemlinger had an assistant named Charley uarters who claimed to be a member of the Metis tribe He was assigned to teach Dell to work which mainly involved unskilled labor like diggingoose pits for hunters and carrying luggage up to rooms in the hotel Like Remlinger he was a man with a past and an unhealthy obsession with Hitler rouge Stalin mascara Mussolini and lipstick Needless to say he made Dell uneasy You always think you know the worst thing But it s never the very worst thing Charley uartersDell while trying to decide a new course for his life discovered a new relationship with time Possibly being a town boy in town time matters so much and being suddenly set down in an empty place I didn t know among people I knew little about left me subject to the elemental forces that mimicked the experience I was undergoing and made it tolerable Against these forces an earth rotating a sun lowering its angle in the sky winds filling with rain and the A Shark Never Sleeps: Wheeling and Dealing with the NFL's Most Ruthless Agent geese arriving time is just a made up thing and recedes in importance and shouldI can t imagine the circumstances that would allow TIME to loosen the choke hold around my neck I m always so conscious of time even the amount of time that I m taking to write this review and I ve TAKEN TOO MUCH It s hardoing through life without killing someone Charley uartersRichard Ford is a lyrical writer You will be exposed to beautiful sparse prose If you have not read Richard Ford before I would still recommend reading The Sportswriter first although in my experience men tend to like that book better than women It is the book where I feel all his ideas about a self analysed life coalesce into perfect expression Others may have liked the first half of this book better than I did but the second half tugged at my own memories my own insecurities and even had me tearing up in a particular scene with his sister It made me appreciate the decisions that I ve made that have been mostly right and also respect the fact that one misstep could have landed me in circumstances that are less than ideal We are in some ways caretakers of the dreams of that 15 year old and that 25 year old and that 35 year old and that 25 year old and that 35 year that resides in all of us I do wonder if I stood before a panel of my past selves would they be mortified or would they shrug and My Jihad: The True Story of An American Mujahid's Amazing Journey from Usama Bin Laden's Training Camps to Counterterrorism with the FBI and CIA give me a tentative thumbs upIf you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at Yaaawn I must say it is very well written and I could picture all the boring details and bleak scenes which seemed too by at an excruciating belabored pace It was like watching a train wreck in super duper slow motion frame by frame Two train wrecks to be precise for this poor little slob of a main character This is one of those books that may actually translate into one of those acclaimed films which if it does I will then have wished that I had waited for the film to come out because it would have one by much uicker The scenes are already described in so much detail that all you would have to do is look at them on the big screen and listen to this poor kid s narration much faster that wayBottom line Wait for the film to come Out THEN Pretend To Like THEN pretend to like I noticed that there is a box at the bottom to check to hide the review because of Spoilers I don t think Richard has to worry about that because he does it himself all the way through this book I kept reading because I thought there might be some wonderful shocking twist at the end of the story I could see the train coming toward our train and knew what the end of it would be but I just couldn t et off the track Sometimes I feel that the publishing world has a sickly fear of boring the reader In the YA world which is the world I inhabit as a writer the pressure is never ending for the novel to clip along at a lively pace less you lose your young hyper active reader It s almost as if we must do all we can to Nine Ghosts give TV and Video Games and Instant Messaging aood run for their money So it is Las Maravillosas Obras de Dios: Historias B�blicas Para La Familia good to read authors who are willing toive their readers a different kind of pleasure one that reuires a shift to a different way of inhabiting time a different leisurely contemplative consciousness Richard Ford does this well His writing does not sparkle with brilliant metaphors He writes the way a not very literary person would write a memoir which is what Dell the young narrator of his book is doing But this prosaic narration full of Dell s ordinary mind engages you brings you in into a uieter slower and eventually rich world The book is not for

Richard Ford Ò 7 characters

,
Ide of town The blinds are Riding Hard generally always down the interior looks like arenade went off it s surrounded by junk and most often than not a rusty old flatbed truck minus the wheels sits alone half camouflaged by weeds and Arabian Challenge grass that has never seen a mower The individual has a six pack of beer cigarettes or drugs and aun within a three feet radius at all times on the eye they don t look right in this case a man wearing makeup are up to no ood and planning bad thingsBut this would come laterNow back to where it all started Great Falls MontanaRichard Ford s novel in simple terms explores the impact of parental foolishness on a son s and daughter s life predominantly the son Dell Parsons who narrates the story as a 66 year old man looking back on the events that changed his ordinary and dull childhood His father Bev an ex serviceman runs into financial difficulties after etting mixed up in some dodgy business involving stolen cattle and the selling of steaks Both his mother and father are simplistic people who have never crossed the line into crime and appear way out of their depths when planning to rob a bank further up north of course all doesn t end wellWith parents in lock up sentences pending both fifteen year old Dell and sister Berner are for the first time in their lives not only alone but having to come to terms with the fact their parents may or may not be bank robbers To avoid Montana authorities where both children would be taken into care the mother arranges for them with a friend to o to Canada but after Berner runs away it s Dell who is left solely to face the daunting prospect of living with strangers in to him anyway a strange landAlthough a big book with a slow burning nature that takes time to et of the ILLERAMMA Kathalu ground it didn t ever feel that way even though the bank robbery when it is finally described almost one hundred pages in is reconstructed in low key fashion it s outcome a foregone conclusion What is important here is not the event but its long aftermath Tantalisingly Ford s haunting prose works wonders most of the time the huge open spaces of Montana create something vast within as the essence of innocence it fractured from the sudden tragic rupture in the fabric of an ordinary family life that s blown to pieces The narrative takes all the inner insignificance things of everyday life andives them meaning wet leaves hanging outside a window the smell of rain on the horizon creatures running for cover on an empty highway or the lonely siblings bemused and detached starring off into the distance mulling over just what s out there Ford can stretch a sentence often beautifully to paragraph length but his writing is much straightforwardly descriptive than it has been in the past had this been an early Terrence Malick film there would no doubt be huge tracking shots of stunning sweeping landscapes and slow close ups of people as a warm breeze American Literature Student Text gently blows through their hair whilst the camera lens reflects the sun This is the feel the first half of the book advocates before turning all the unpleasant and sadly towards the end familiar territoryDell s clandestine live wouldet downbeat in Canada where he takes a job working for a mysterious American fellow exile named Arthur Reminger he in turn has a oddball friend Charley who Dell would hang around with mostly Cheyenne: A Sweet Historical Romance goose hunting on the prairie When Reminger s own dark past catches up with him Dell becomes an unwitting accomplice in a ruthlessly executed crime and for the second time in his life Dell would again be spirited away to the unknownThis doesn t read like a crime novel nor is it supposed to be those hoping for that will end up disappointed Ford is not interested in the crimes themselves but how they shape ones life and the way of being in and responding to the world Throughout Dell s calm and measured voice suggests someone not so much damaged but just trying to work things out There are several moments in Canada where Dell seems on the verge of somereat epiphany but arrives instead at a smaller understanding of the strange trajectory of his past A past he must leave in the past to build the foundations of a better life in the future In a roundabout way there are faults and flaws here and there but they amount to small cracks in the pavement rather than holes in the road Some will find it over long boring where nothing really happens well The Battle of Maldon and Other Old English Poems go and watch a Spaghetti Western instead This is a delicately structured work with Ford casting a progressive powerful spell over the reader with deft hands that carry a voice of purerace 45 In Canada Richard Ford has written a long and contemplative story The book sleeve calls it a visionary novel of vast landscapes complex identities and fragile humanity which uestions the fine line between the normal and the extraordinary and the moments that haunt our settled view of the world A true description would be hard to find The opening sentences of the story are First I ll tell you about the robbery our parents committed Then about the murders which happened later How could you fail to read on after that Dell Parsons is a sixty five year old teacher an American living in Canada who is looking back at the year 1960 when he was fifteen He and his twin sister Berner are air force brats their father Bev a southerner flew in that final bombing of Japan a I feel flew in that final bombing of Japan a I feel when a book teaches me something new about reading when a writer has the confidence in his story to pull no punche The world doesn t usually think about bank robbers as having children though plenty must But the children s story which mine and my sister s is is ours to weigh and apportion and judge as we see it Years later in college I read that to weigh and apportion and judge as we see it Years later in college I read that reat critic Ruskin wrote that composition is the arrangement of uneual things Which means it s for the composer to determine what s eual to what and what matters and what can be set to the side of life s hurtling passage onward What do you do when your parents turn out to be bank robbersDell Parson s and his twin sister Berner age fifteen find themselves orphaned by the federal justice system after their parents make the fateful and unwise decision to rob the Agricultural National Bank in Creek North Dakota Despite being twins they are very different from one another in appearance and personality Nature doesn t rhyme her children Before the system can catch up with them and make them wards of the state Berner decides to strike out on her own for California and Dell is spirited away across the border into Canada to live with the brother of a friend of his mother This is the uick and dirty synopsis of the first half of the book I struggled with this part of the book and had a near crisis of faith in my veneration of the Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Richard Ford The second half was vintage Richard Ford My heart sang My head buzzed I inhaled pages and then turned back to inhale them again I had to o out on my back deck smile at the sky and breath a bit of oxygen heavy air to make sure my mind was working at maximum capacity to appreciate the final chapters of this book VINDICATIONBack in 1986 Vintage Books launched this concept of publishing really cutting edge literature in a trade paperback format They skipped releasing a hardcover edition of these books and never even considered a mass market paperback The idea was to eventually eliminate the other publishing formats It worked and it didn t work I was employed at Publisher s Book Outlet in a mall in Phoenix Arizona and we sold these books as fast as we could Black Wings of Cthulhu get them back in stock Richard Ford s The Sportswriter which I read with eyes wide open and
