David Adams Richards. He was puffing, and every now and again he would stop to cough. It was at these times, when alone with her that Antony would tell Valerie about his youth.

David Adams Richards. It was at these times, when alone with her that Antony would tell Valerie about his youth n Toronto when he was sixteen, and how he swam the river with his brother Claude, or how a friend got killed in the hold of a ship in Millbank – the dry pulpwood on that far-off 1955 June day, which seemed only a second removed when he remembered it, falling an. Inch from his own skull.

Richards has a knack for writing about bleak, small-town, lower-class lives teetering on the edge of complete disaster. He isn't condescending or judgmental about people most of us probably wouldn't want to spend time with in real life. That is, in his early fiction-as of 2000's "Mercy Among the Children," which ironically was his first real popular success, he started being more overtly moralistic and preachy.

I suppose that a plot that does not move on gives an accurate picture of lives that do not move on, but the subject matter of this book was not of interest to me.

(Apologies for re-using the same text I just used for another book in this trilogy, "For Those Who Hunt the Wounded Down.")

I haven't read this book for quite some time but upon noticing no one had commented on it, I had to write SOMETHING. This is part of a trilogy by DAR set in the same hard-luck Eastern Canada burg. They have some overlapping characters, although each novel is complete into itself, there's no connecting overall storyline. You can read them in any order.

Richards has a knack for writing about bleak, small-town, lower-class lives teetering on the edge of complete disaster. He isn't condescending or judgmental about people most of us probably wouldn't want to spend time with in real life. (That is, in his early fiction--as of 2000's "Mercy Among the Children," which ironically was his first real popular success, he started being more overtly moralistic and preachy. I like his later work much, much less.) The desperation is palpable--as well as the pervasive poverty, violence and alcoholism--yet there's often a sort of transcendence at the end.

Some people might find something this stark and downbeat merely depressing. But if you have a taste for spare, beautifully crafted fiction whose thorny characters and relationships gradually reveal themselves and draw us in through everyday behavior, these books are an acquired taste that can be riveting and exhilarating in their own way. It's not excessive to say that the first 20-plus years of DAR's novels make him worthy of being called the Faulkner of rural New Brunswick.
