But would easygoing Harold Matson" really "kill himself? If so, why?
Haunted by the ghost of his father, Jesse delves into family secrets, wrestles with questions of justice and retribution, and confronts the nature of his own responsibility. And just when he's decided that he alone must shoulder his family's burden, the beautiful and troubled Christine Montez enters his life, forcing him to reconsider his plans.
In spare, elegant prose, Lin Enger tells the story of a young man trying to hold his family together in a world tipped suddenly upside down. Set among pristine lakes and beneath towering pines, "Undiscovered Country "is at once a bold reinvention of Shakespeare's "Hamlet "and a hair-bristling story of betrayal, revenge, and the possibilities of forgiveness.
