“Canada” by Richard Ford (Ecco, $27.99)
When Dell Parsons’ parents rob a bank, and are subsequently arrested, his life is irreparably altered. A family friend takes Dell in, bringing him to the wilds of Saskatchewan, in hopes of a better life. Once there, Dell struggles to understand, but the search for peace only moves him closer to a harrowing and murderous collision with darkness. Told in spare, elegant prose, “Canada” is another masterpiece by Pulitzer Prize-winner Ford.

Wright, a practicing psychologist, expertly weaves together a literary tapestry of self-discovery, brutal violence, and tender, burgeoning sexuality, leaving readers both intrigued and spellbound.
