Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Ford delivers a haunting novel about the cataclysm that undoes one teenage boy’s family and the stark and unforgiving landscape in which he attempts to find grace. When fifteen-year-old Del Parsons' parents rob a bank, his normal life is altered forever and he must flee the country with an enigmatic and alluring fugitive. A true masterwork from one of our greatest writers, “Canada” is a profound novel of boundaries traversed, innocence lost, and the mysterious bonds of family.
