"Hank, Leland, Kip and Ronny were all born and raised in the same Wisconsin town--Little Wing--and are now coming into their own (or not) as husbands and fathers. One of them never left, still farming the family's land that's been tilled for generations. Others did leave, went farther afield to make good, with varying degrees of success; as a rock star, commodities trader, rodeo stud. And seamlessly woven into their patchwork is Beth, whose presence among them--both then and now--fuels the kind of passion one comes to expect of lovesongs and rivalries. Now all four are home, in hopes of finding what could be real purchase in the world. The result is a shared memory only half-recreated, riddled with culture clashes between people who desperately wish to see themselves as the unified tribe they remember, but are confronted with how things have, in fact, changed. There is conflict here between longtime buddies, between husbands and wives--told with writing that is, frankly, gut-wrenching, and even heartbreaking. But there is also hope, healing, and at times, even heroism. It is strong, American stuff, not at all afraid of showing that we can be good, too--not just fallible and compromising. Shotgun Lovesongs is a remarkable and uncompromising saga that explores the age-old question of whether or not you can ever truly come home again--and the kind of steely faith and love returning requires"--

Camp Chippewa, 1962. Nelson Doughty, age thirteen, social outcast and overachiever, is the Bugler, sounding the reveille proudly each morning. Yet this particular summer marks the beginning of an uncertain and tenuous friendship with a popular boy named Jonathan. Over the years, Nelson, irrevocably scarred from the Vietnam War, becomes Scoutmaster of Camp Chippewa, while Jonathan marries, divorces, and turns his father's business into a highly profitable company. And when something unthinkable happens at a camp get-together with Nelson as Scoutmaster and Jonathan's teenage grandson and daughter-in-law as campers, the aftermath demonstrates the depths--and the limits--of Nelson's selflessness and bravery. The Hearts of Men is a sweeping, panoramic novel about the slippery definitions of good and evil, family and fidelity, the challenges and rewards of lifelong friendships, the bounds of morality--and redemption

Nickolas Butler's debut novel, Shotgun Lovesongs, has become an international bestseller and won numerous accolades, including France's Prix PAGE/America, previously won by Chad Harbach's The Art of Fielding. Now, in Beneath the Bonfire, he demonstrates his talent for portraying "a place and its people with such love that you'll find yourself falling for them, too" (Josh Weil, author of The Great Glass Sea). Young couples gather to participate in an annual "chainsaw party," cutting down trees for firewood in anticipation of the winter. A group of men spend a weekend hunting for mushrooms in the wilderness where they grew up and where some still find themselves trapped. An aging environmentalist takes out his frustration and anger on a singular, unsuspecting target. One woman helps another get revenge against a man whose crime extends far beyond him to an entire community. Together, the ten stories in this dazzling, surprising collection evoke a landscape that will be instantly recognizable to anyone who has traveled the back roads and blue highways of America, and they completely capture the memorable characters who call it home

In den Augen seines Vaters ist Nelson eine Enttäuschung. Wer will schon ein Kind, das weder Freunde noch Selbstbewusstsein besitzt? Je intensiver der verunsicherte Junge sich nach Zuwendung sehnt, desto stärker sondert sich der Vater ab, bis er irgendwann ganz aus dem Leben seines Sohnes verschwindet. Doch in einem Punkt hat er sich getäuscht. Nelson ist nicht allein. Jonathan, sein bester Freund aus dem Pfadfinderlager, ist das genaue Gegenteil von Nelson: bei allen beliebt, pragmatisch und mit einer unverwüstlichen Leichtigkeit ausgestattet. Was aber treibt jemanden wie Jonathan dazu, sich mit einem Außenseiter anzufreunden? Und stand Jonathan wirklich immer so rückhaltlos zu ihm? Das Leben im rauhen Wisconsin verlangt Nelson, Jonathan und dessen Familie Prüfungen ab, die Freundschaft und Loyalität auf eine harte Probe stellen

In Western counties by Nickolas Butler( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Nickolas Butler, author of the national bestseller Shotgun Lovesongs, comes a moving story of a cop's last bid to right a wrong she may have helped create. Aida doesn't recognize the young woman at first. It could be the scars that have altered Bethany's face, the ones she tries and fails to cover up, that make her unrecognizable. Or it could just be Aida's failing memory. Even before her retirement from the force she was losing track of things, whole days even. And it was in one of those moments that she fears she missed the chance to help Bethany before. A mistake that she now hopes she might be able to correct, or at the very least do penance for. Set amidst the failed farms and small towns of the prairie, "In Western Counties" portrays one woman fighting to hold onto her own life, even as she frees the life of another

Sommeren 1962 vekker trettenårige Nelson speiderleiren Camp Chippewa daglig med en hornsalutt. Nelson er en flink og flittig speider, men en outsider blant de andre guttene. Leirleder Wilbur og den populære Jonathan er de eneste som tilbyr ham noe som kan ligne på et vennskap. Når leiren går mot slutten oppdager Nelson at det foregår ureglementerte aktiviteter blant guttene. Skal han tie og la de andre slippe unna, eller holde fast ved speideridealet om å gjøre det rette? Vi følger Nelson, Wilbur og Jonathan gjennom nesten seksti år med hverdagsliv, krig, skuffelser og gleder. I løpet av denne tiden endres USA gradvis til et samfunn der gamle moralske koder ser ut til å forsvinne. Det er ikke enkelt å velge rett, selv om man ønsker å gjøre det gode. Omtalen er utarbeidet av BS
