review Tinkers AUTHOR Paul Harding Tinkers AUTHOR Paul Harding characters à 7 Summary ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Paul Harding Special edition of Paul Harding’s Pulitzer Prize–winning debut novel featuring a new foreword by Marilynne Robinson and book club extras inside In this deluxe tenth anniversary edition Marilynne Robinson introduces the beautiful novel Tinkers which begins with an old man who lies dying As time collapses into memory he travels deep into his past where he is reunited with his father and relives the wonder and pain of his impoverished New England youth At once heartbreaking and life affirming Tinkers is an elegiac meditation on love loss and the fierce beauty of natureThe story behind this New York Tim.

I m giving up on critics And on prizes too This book won the Pulitzer and was lauded by the critics I found it one of the most boring books I ve come across in a long time The fact that it was praised so highly bothers me I started reading when I was about sixteen I have not been without a book ever since and I m seventy I ve read thousands of books all the English American and Russian classics and all sorts in between I think I have a feel for a good book if for no other reason than that I have agreed so often with the best critic of all time This book was touted for capturing a New England past I grew up on a farm in New England and found little I recognized It was praised for its depiction of a dying man and of his memories of his father and his love of fixing things thus the title Sorry I did not connect The novel has absolutely no plot What was left then was the writing That was what won it the critics praise and the prize And this is what most bothered me Self indulgent rambling is NOT beautiful writing If I describe entering a room and saying hello to you in ten pages of musings on the love life of ants and the construction of window sashes in words with no poetic value it s a stretch to call my prose beautiful When I think of beautiful writing I think of Proust or Lawrence Durrell in the Alexandria uartet where the words flow like syrup to place you in the scene to make you feel what the character is feeling Wordsmithing doesn t do it There will always be great writers and maybe Harding will become one What I uestion is will there be great readers Will there be people who award prizes and praise to books with real merit or with there only be elitists praising what s different
