The Shadow Boxer PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Shadow Boxer free pdf Steven Heighton is already recognized as one of the best writers to come to the fore in the nineties, a winner of numerous literary awards, whose work is widely translated. In "The Shadow Boxer, " he delivers a stunning portrait of the artist in the tradition of such great tales as Jude the "Obscure, Candide" and even "Don Quixote," and gives literary life to the Northern Ontario landscape of "the Soo," and the demanding, muscular life of Lake Superior where giant ore-barges make their way over the grave of "The Edmund Fitzgerald." Intricately patterned and multi-layered, this is the story of Sevigne Torrins, poet and boxer, who sets off into the world to make it, and whose romantic and professional misadventures take him as far as Egypt before he finds his way back to the Great Lakes. But the classic writerly dream that Sevigne pursues turns out in practice to have a different and darker reality than any he had foreseen. A passionate love story, a gripping narrative, "The Shadow Boxer" is also about the power of dreams and regret. It heralds a major new Canadian novelist and a master storyteller.
