Description

When fifteen-year-old Dell Parsons' parents rob a bank, his sense of a happy, knowable life is forever shattered. A family friend spirits Dell across the Canadian border, in hopes of delivering him to a better life. There, Dell is taken in by Arthur Remlinger, an enigmatic American whose suave reserve masks a violent nature. Undone by the calamity of his parents' arrest, Dell struggles under the vast prairie sky to remake himself and define the adults he thought he knew and loved. But his search for grace and peace only moves him nearer to a harrowing and murderous collision with Remlinger.

A masterwork of haunting and spectacular vision from one of our greatest writers, Canada is a profound novel of boundaries traversed, innocence lost and reconciled, and the mysterious and consoling bonds of family. Told in spare elegant prose, resonant and luminous, it is destined to become a classic.
