Enon Summary

Enon by Paul Harding

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.

Enon Reviews

I don't think I've read anything quite so strangely moving for a very long time. Such a relief to know there are still writers around who can write about real people, and who notice the world around them, and can turn that into exquisite art. Unbearably tense, but so rewarding as well ... every snatch of dialogue seemed pitch-perfect. * Gerard Woodward *
Harding's skillful whipsawing of the reader from the surreal to the quotidian is the best writing he's done ... Beautifully turned: Harding has defogged his style a bit and gained a stronger emotional impact from it. * Kirkus Review *
Gorgeous and haunting ... Harding's second novel again proves he's a contemporary master and one of our most important voices. * Publisher's Weekly *
[A] compulsive read ... it's so delicately written that you can't help but marvel at Harding's enormous skill * Psychologies Magazine *
This is a novel that just requires concentration, is all, and it repays that concentration with writing that is both beautiful and thoughtful. * Bookmunch *
