Divisadero by Michael Ondaatje
Divisadero: Book summary and reviews of Divisadero by Michael Ondaatje
In the 1970s in northern California, near Gold Rush country, a father and his teenage daughters, Anna and Claire, work their farm with the help of Coop, an enigmatic young man who makes his home with them. Theirs is a makeshift family, until it is riven by an incident of violence of both hand and heart that sets fire to the rest of their lives.
"Ondaatje's first fiction in six years lacks the gut punch of Anil's Ghost and The English Patient, but delivers his trademark seductive prose, quixotic characters and psychological intricacy." - PW.
