Contraportada:

When fifteen-year-old Del Parsons' parents rob a North Dakota bank, his normal life is altered forever, and a threshold is crossed that can never be uncrossed. His parents' imprisonment threatens a turbulent and uncertain future for Del and his twin sister, Berner. Fierce with resentment, Berner flees their Montana home for California. But Del is not completely abandoned. A family friend spirits him across the Canadian border toward safety and a better life. There, afloat on the Saskatchewan prairie, Del finds only cold refuge from Arthur Remlinger, an enigmatic and alluring American fugitive with a dark and violent past.

Undone by the calamity of his parents' robbery, Del struggles to remake himself. But his search for grace only moves him nearer to a harrowing and murderous collision with the forces of darkness that shadow us all.

A true 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, both resonant and luminous, it is destined to become a classic.

Críticas:

"Pure vocal grace, quiet humor, precise and calm observation."--The New Yorker

"A triumph of voice.... The writing... is spare, but heartbreaking."--USA Today

"A magnificent work of Montana gothic that confirms his position as one of the finest stylists and most humane storytellers in America...Ford has left the suburbs of New Jersey two thousand miles away and delivered his most elegiac and profound book."--Washington Post

"[R]obust and powerful... tap[s] into something momentous and elemental about the profound moral chaos behind the actions of seemingly responsible people... By depicting tragedies without deep roots in reason or purpose, Mr. Ford has dramatized the frightening discovery of the world's anarchic heart."--Wall Street Journal

"Richard Ford returns with one of his most powerful novels yet...Ford has never written better...Canada is Richard Ford's best book since Independence Day, and despite its robbery and killings it too depends on its voice, a voice oddly calm and marked by the spare grandeur of its landscape."--Daily Beast

"["Canada"]confirms his position as one of the finest stylists and most humane storytellers in America... his most elegiac and profound book..."--Washington Post

"Robust and powerful... Ford is able to tap into something momentous and elemental about the profound moral chaos behind the actions of seemingly responsible people... Ford has dramatized the frightening discovery of the world's anarchic heart."--Wall Street Journal

"Awe-inspiring... The laconic, grief-stricken voice of Dell, looking back on his past, trying to make some kind sense of what happened when his family imploded, keeps you turning pages, as do the quiet, thought-provoking revelations that Ford drops in throughout."--O, the Oprah Magazine

"One of the most memorably heartbreaking novels of the year."--Christian Science Monitor

"Masterly... in Ford's American tragedy, filled with lost innocence and inevitable violence--a rusting carnival, a rabbit caught in a coyote's jaws--geography feels a lot like fate."--Vogue

"Marvelous..."Canada" is a masterpiece of a story with rich language and dialogue filled with suspense, bleakness, human frailties and flaws, and a little bit of hope seen through the eyes of an adolescent boy whose emotions seem often aligned with the desolate landscape of its setting."--The Oregonian (Portland)

"[Ford's] newest novel Canada, shows an artist in full command of his craft--sparsely elegant and bracingly direct, with a refreshing lack of irony or tricks."--Men's Journal

"[A] novel about big truths told by a writer with clear vision...solid, satisfying craftsmanship. This is a Richard Ford novel in the tradition of his earlier work. It also is a coming-of-age story, and a story about the discovery of identity."--Washington Independent Review of Books

"[A] deeply felt and magnificently imagined work...With Canada, Ford has given us his deepest exploration yet of weakness and betrayal set amid a boy's coming of age. It is a memorable novel, suffused with love, sorrow and regret."--Austin American-Statesman

"A must-read. . . . "Canada" reminds us why Ford is considered one of this country's most distinguished writers."--St. Paul Pioneer Press

"This is a brilliant and engrossing portrait of a fragile American family and the fragile consciousness of a teenage boy. It is also fascinating in the way it reveals the plot in the opening page and then winds backwards, offering a more and more intimate version of the story."--Colm Toibin
