en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – July 2010
Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. An old man lies dying. He is hallucinating, in death throes from cancer and kidney failure. A methodical repairer of clocks, he is now released from the usual constraints of time and memory to rejoin his father, an epileptic, itinerant peddler, whom he had lost seven decades before. In his return to the wonder and pain of his impoverished childhood in the backwoods of Maine, he recoers a natural wold that is at once indifferent to man and inseparable from him, menacing and awe inspiring.

"Wonderful, lyrical ... Triumphant ... A beautiful, moving and elegiac lament on the human condition ... Hypnotic." The Times "Brilliantly realised ... a reminder of how rich the written language can still be" Independent "Prepare to be seduced... Beguiles from the opening sentence ...This little novel is a wonder" Irish Times "An expert piece of historical and psychological archaeology, which unpicks the intricacies of ordinary life while also asking the terrifying, unanswerable, yet endlessly fascinating questions that haunt us all" Observer "A dense, elegiac and richly imagined piece of remembering...Life-affirming and visceral in its detail." Daily Mail
