Inhaltsangabe: Ford's mesmerizing first novel is the story of two godless pilgrims. Robard Hewes has driven across the country in the service of a destructive passion. Sam Newell is seeking the missing piece of himself. When these men converge, on an uncharted island in the Mississippi, each discovers the thing he's looking for--amid a conflagration of violence that's as shocking as it is inevitable.
"This is one of those books that hit you hard...a story filled with breathing characters and genius-crafted dialogue between moments of consummate description.... I can't be unbiased. I'm mad for this book."--Elizabeth Ashton, Houston Chronicle
Inhaltsangabe: Two men on very different searches converge in a desolate pocket of the American frontier. Robard Hughes has raced across the country in pursuit of a woman, and Sam Newel is hunting for the missing part of himself. On an uncharted island in the Mississippi, both these godless pilgrims find what they have been searching for in an explosion of shocking violence. The novel that launched the career of one of America's literary masters, A Piece of My Heart is a tour-de-force that does justice to Ford's diverse literary gifts: his unerring eye for detail, his pitch-perfect ear for dialogue, and his sharp understanding of human nature.

"Some novels create a world as enclosed as a terrarium. 'A Piece of My Heart' ranges wide in its landscapes, human and geographic, yet the heart is broken into pieces by repeated and obsessive sequences-by violence, by cruelty, by sexual love coupling with hatred, and by purposeless random accident. Richard Ford tells the violent, comic, and deeply moving story of two men, one pursuing a woman, the other pursuing himself. Robard and Sam meet in a bizarre household on an island hideaway in the Mississippi. :Their original intentions in going to the island are quickly obscured by the world of purposelessness they have entered, and are ultimately sacrificed in the explosive finale. 297 pages. Displays minor reading/handling wear yet sans rips/tears and other prominent flaws. MYLAR COVER PROTECTED. A quality copy! Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 002227
