Hailed as a masterpiece,
Tinkers, Paul Harding’s Pulitzer Prize-winning
debut, is a modern classic. Here, in
Enon, Harding follows a year in the life of Charlie Crosby as he tries to come to terms with a shattering personal tragedy. Grandson of George Crosby (the protagonist of
Tinkers), Charlie inhabits the same dynamic landscape of New England, its seasons mirroring his turbulent emotional odyssey. Along the way, Charlie’s encounters are brought to life by his wit, his insights into history, and his yearning to understand the big questions. A stunning mosaic of human experience,
Enon affirms Paul Harding as one of the most gifted and profound writers of his generation.
