Riassunto: [Read by Danny Campbell, Andrus Nichols, Robin Miles]
Suffused with Banks' trademark lyricism and reckless humor, the twelve stories in A Permanent Member of the Family examine the myriad of ways we try--and sometimes fail--to connect with one another. In the title story, a father looks back on the legend of the cherished family dog whose divided loyalties mirrored the fragmenting of his marriage. ''Former Marine'' asks, to chilling effect, if one can ever stop being a parent. And in the haunting, evocative ''Searching for Veronica,'' a mysterious woman looking for her missing daughter may not be who she claims she is. One of our most acute and penetrating authors, Banks' virtuosic writing animates stories that are profoundly humane, darkly funny, and absolutely unforgettable.
Dal retro di copertina:
A masterly collection of new stories from Russell Banks, acclaimed author of The Sweet Hereafter and Rule of the Bone, which maps the complex terrain of the modern American family
The New York Times lauds Russell Banks as "the most compassionate fiction writer working today." Long celebrated for his unflinching, empathetic works that explore the unspoken but hard realities of contemporary culture, Banks now turns his keen intelligence and emotional acuity on perhaps his most complex subject yet: the shape of family in its many forms.
Suffused with Banks's trademark lyricism and reckless humor, the twelve stories in A Permanent Member of the Family examine the myriad ways we try?and sometimes fail?to connect with one another, as we seek a home in the world.
Moving between the stark beauty of winter in upstate New York and the seductive heat of Florida, A Permanent Member of the Family charts with subtlety and precision the ebb and flow of both the families we make for ourselves and the ones we're born into. One of our most acute and penetrating authors, Banks is a virtuosic writer whose stories are profoundly humane, deeply?and darkly?funny, and absolutely unforgettable.
