Product Overview

As time collapses into memory, a dying man travels deep into his past where he is reunited with his father and relives the wonder and pain of his impoverished New England youth. At once heartbreaking and life affirming, "Tinkers" is an elegiac meditation on love, loss, and the fierce beauty of nature.

"In Hardings's skillful evocation, Crosby's life, seen from its final moments, becomes a mosaic of memories...."
"TINKERS is a poignant exploration of where we may journey when the clock has barely a tick or two left and we really can't go anywhere at all."
From the Publisher
Annotation Paul Harding's beautiful and melancholy debut novel tells the story of George Washington Crosby, a New England clock repairman, as he lies on his deathbed, remembering his life and the life of his father, a traveling salesman afflicted by epileptic seizures. TINKERS's rich language, powerful evocation of memory, and subtle sense of tragedy all mark the arrival of a singularly gifted new writer. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the 100 Best Books of 2009, and winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
Editors Note On his deathbed, surrounded by his family, George Washington Crosby's throughts drift back to his childhood and the father who abandoned him when he was twelve.
