The Tenderness of Wolves
Penney, Stef Quercus, 2007, počet strán 450

Obal: soft, Stav: 4 / 5, A brilliant and breathtaking debut that captivated readers and garnered critical acclaim in the United Kingdom, The Tenderness of Wolves was long - listed for the Orange Prize in fiction and won the Costa Award (formerly the Whitbread) Book of the Year. The frigid isolation of European immigrants living on the 19th - century Canadian frontier is the setting for British author Penney's haunting debut. Seventeen - year - old Francis Ross disappears the same day his mother discovers the scalped body of his friend, fur trader Laurent Jammet, in a neighboring cabin. The murder brings newcomers to the small settlement, fr_om inexperienced Hudson Bay Company representative Donald Moody to elderly eccentric Thomas Sturrock, who arrives searching for a mysterious archeological fragment once in Jammet's possession. Other than Francis, no real suspects emerge until half - Indian trapper William Parker is caught searching the dead man's house. Parker escapes and joins with Francis's mother to track Francis north, a journey that produces a deep if unlikely bond between them. Only when the pair reaches a distant Scandinavian settlement do both characters and reader begin to understand Francis, who arrived there days before them. Penney's absorbing, quietly convincing narrative illuminates the characters, each a kind of outcast, through whose complex viewpoints this dense, many - layered story is told.
