Snapper

by Brian Kimberling - £9.99  Headline Publishing Group (Tinder Press) (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780755396214 | ISBN 10: 0755396219

With wry humour and real freshness, Snappercharts the disastrous love affair between career birdwatcher Nathan Lochmueller and the place that made him.
 
Set in a brilliantly observed rural Indiana, 'the bastard son of the Midwest', Snapper is a book about birdwatching, a woman who won't stay true, and a pick-up truck that won't start. Here turtles eat alligators for breakfast, Klansmen skulk in the undergrowth, and truckers drop into the diner of a town named Santa Claus to ensure that no child's Christmas letter goes unanswered, while Nathan grapples with the eternal question: should I stay, or should I go?
 
Kimberling's vision of small-town life is as characterful as Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon, but bristling with the tensions of race, class, poverty and prejudice, it makes for a bracing read.
