"The New York Times Book Review called Reservation Road ""a triumph,"" and the novel was universally acclaimed. Now, in a brilliant literary performance by one of our most compelling and compassionate writers, John Burnham Schwartz reintroduces us to Re servation Road s unforgettable characters in a superb new work of fiction that stands magnificently on its own. Northwest Corner is a riveting story about the complex, fierce, ultimately inspiring resilience of families in the face of life s most dif ficult and unexpected challenges.Twelve years after a tragic accident and a cover-up that led to prison time, Dwight Arno, now fifty, is a man who has started over without exactly moving on. Living alone in California, haunted yet keeping his he ad do wn, Dwight manages a sporting goods store and dates a woman to whom he hasn t revealed the truth about his past. Then an unexpected arrival throws his carefully neutralized life into turmoil and exposes all that he s hidden.Sam, Dwight s estran ged co llege-age son, has shown up without warning, fleeing a devastating incident in his own life. In its way, Sam s sense of guilt is as crushing as his father s. As the two men are forced to confront their similar natures and their half-buried hop es for connection, they must also search for redemption and love. In turn, they dramatically transform the lives of the women around them: the ex-wives, mothers, and lovers they have turned to in their desperate attempts to somehow rewrite, outrun, or eradi cate the past.Told in the resonant voices of everyday people gripped in the emotional riptide of lived life, Northwest Corner is at once tough and heart-lifting, an urgent, powerful story about family bonds that can never be broken and the w ayward ro ads that lead us back to those we love."
