About this product
- DescriptionHis life had come to this: save a few deer from the jaws of dogs. He was a small man sent to perform a small task. Howard Elman is a man whose internal landscape is as disordered as his front yard, where native New Hampshire birches and maples mingle with a bullet-riddled washer, abandoned bathroom fixtures, and several junk cars. Howard, anti-hero of this first vel in Ernest Hebert's highly acclaimed Darby Chronicles, is a man who is tough and tender. Howard's battle against encroaching change symbolizes the class conflict between indigeus Granite Staters scratching out a living and citified immigrants with college degrees and big bank accounts. Like the winter-weakened deer threatened by the dogs of March-the rmally docile house pets whose instincts arouse them to chase and kill for sport-Howard, too, is sorely beset. The seven vels of Hebert's Darby Chronicles cover 35 years in the life of a small New England town as seen through the eyes of three families-the Elmans, the Salmons, and the Jordans-each representing a distinct social class. It all starts with The Dogs of March, cited for excellence in 1980 by the Hemingway Foundation (w the Pen Faulkner Award for Fiction).
