Abstract:

"From the bestselling author of 'The Shipping News' comes 'Postcards, ' the tale of the Blood family, New England farmers who must confront the twentieth century-- and their own extinction. As the family slowly disintegrates, its members struggle valiantly against the powerful forces of loneliness and necessity, seeking a sense of home and place forever lost. Loyal Blood, eldest son, is forced to abandon the farm when he takes his lover's live, thus beginning a quintessentially American odyssey of solitude and adventure. Yearning for love, yet forced by circumstance to be always alone. Loyal comes to symbolize the alienation and frustration behind the American dream."
