From Giller Prize winner Johanna Skibsrud, a "compassionate and beautiful" (Globe and Mail) story of families changed forever by the upheavals of history<
>The year is 1932, and America is roiling with unrest. Arthur and Douglas Sinclair, a World War I veteran and his son, join a group of impoverished ex-soldiers marching on Washington. Alden and Sutton Kelly, the rebellious children of a powerful Washington judge, become involved with the veterans' struggle, causing an irreparable rift in the Kelly family. When the march explodes in a violent clash between government and veteran forces, Arthur is falsely accused of conspiracy and disappears. The lives of Douglas, Alden, and Sutton are forever changed--linked inextricably by the absence of Arthur Sinclair.<
>Taking us on an unforgettable journey through individual experience and memory against the backdrop of seismic historical events,Quartet for the End of Timeis both a profound meditation on human nature and an astonishing literary accomplishment from one of Canada's most original voices.
