Pulitzer-Prize-winning novelist Paul Enon on the nature of grief

Paul Harding, US-amerikanischer AutorPaul Harding knocked the bookmakers for a loop in 2010 when his novel “Tinkers,” published by a very small press, won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Take that, international publishing conglomerates!

Harding is back with a new novel, “Enon,” and it’s set in the same New England town as “Tinkers,” but the protagonist of “Enon” is the grandson of the “Tinkers” main character. In the first few pages his daughter is killed, then his wife leaves him. Then he breaks his hand. It’s a harrowing, you-are-there portrait of a man wrestling with grief.

Harding is the guest tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors show on state public affairs network TVW (in Seattle, Comcast channel 23). It airs at 7 and 10 p.m.  Or, you can watch it here.

 

For more information, here’s the Seattle Times review of “Enon.”
