    In the 1970s in Northern California, near Gold Rush country, a father and his teenage daughters, Anna and Claire, work their farm with the help of Coop, an enigmatic young man who makes his home with them. Theirs is a makeshift family, until it is riven by an incident of violence that sets fire to the rest of their lives.

    glamazon says: "Baffling"
    "A shining gem."
    Overall

    Divisadero may well be Michael Ondaatje's finest work. As a writer, Ondaatje always challenges his readers to go beyond what he has written. Divisadero is no exception. In this exquisite, elusive novel, he tosses his readers onto the shimmering web of human experience. Divisadero is a shining gem that elevates our consciousness by sending us on a mythic journey across time and space. Through the lives of his characters, Ondaatje, with breathtaking, beautiful prose, encourages us to recognize, honor and ultimately release the pivotal, often painful, events that shape every human life. Only then, can we find redemption and grace within the myriad, precious connections that make us who we are.
