Kate Hendrick,: The Accident

The Accident


Description

A rainy night. A car crash. After the accident Sarah moves to a new school. A new place where no one knows what happened to her or her brother - where she doesn't have to deal with the history that's pulling the rest of her family apart. Will is keeping his head down at home, just trying to get by. Then his sister Lauren comes back - as caustic as always but somehow changed. Will doesn't know what upheaval brought her home. But it's sparking some serious change in his life too. Eliat's got no mother of her own, and she's way too young to be one. Looking after a two-year-old, trying to finish school - sometimes all that keeps her sane is partying as hard and fast as she can. Now the pressure's building and Eliat just wants to get away. Just get into a car and drive. In this impressive and beautifully written debut, Kate Hendrick sets the butterfly effect in motion. The moving stories of three teenagers going through crucial changes - before, after and around the accident - show how random actions acquire significance. How one pivotal moment could transform your life and you might never know; how what you do matters.

Whether writing a shopping list or a poem, art and flower lovers will find this handy, inexpensive, and beautiful pocket-sized notebook irresistible. Its front and back covers are adorned with a full-color reproduction of van The Accident free pdf Gogh's 1889 floral masterpiece "Irises." Blank pages. Summer in Baden-Baden was acclaimed by The New York Review of Books as "a short poetic masterpiece" and by Donald Fanger in The Los Angeles Times as "gripping, mysterious and profoundly moving." A complex, highly original novel, Summer in Baden-Baden has a double narrative. It is wintertime, late December: a species of "now." A narrator Tsypkinis on a train going to Leningrad. And it is also mid-April 1867. The newly married Dostoyevskys, Fyodor, and his wife, Anna Grigor'yevna, are on their way to Germany, for a four-year trip. This is not, like J. M. Coetzee's The Master of St. Petersburg, a Dostoyevsky fantasy. Neither is it a docu-novel, although its author was obsessed with getting everything "right." Nothing is invented, everything is invented. Dostoyevsky's reckless passions for gambling, for his literary vocation, for his wife, are matched by her all-forgiving love, which in turn resonates with the love of literature's disciple, Leonid Tsypkin, for Dostoyevsky. In a remarkable introductory essay (which appeared in The New Yorker), Susan Sontag explains why it is something of a miracle that Summer in Baden-Baden has survived, and celebrates the happy event of its publication in America with an account of Tsypkin's beleaguered life and the important pleasures of his marvelous novel.
