Fractures by Lamar Herrin
Fractures: Book summary and reviews of Fractures by Lamar Herrin
A Thousand Acres and Empire Falls meet during the present hydrofracking controversy as a beleaguered patriarch must decide the fate of his land and children in this enveloping family drama.
"Starred Review. Herrin's deeply contemplative examination of this contentious topic is less about the environmental fallout from an invasive destruction of the land and more about the emotional fragility of a family who feels all too deeply the loss of a way of life." - Booklist
