    In this unforgettable work of fiction, Donald Ray Pollock peers into the soul of a tough Midwestern American town to reveal the sad, stunted, but resilient lives of its residents. Spanning a period from the mid-'60s to the late '90s, the linked stories that comprise Knockemstiff feature a cast of recurring characters who are woebegone, baffled, and depraved - but irresistibly, undeniably real. Rendered in the American vernacular with vivid imagery and a wry, dark sense of humor, these thwarted and sometimes violent lives jump at the listener with inexorable force.

    It is 1917, in that sliver of borderland that divides Georgia from Alabama. Dispossessed farmer Pearl Jewett ekes out a hardscrabble existence with his three young sons: Cane (the eldest, handsome, intelligent); Cob (short, heavyset, a bit slow); and Chimney (the youngest, thin, ill-tempered). Several hundred miles away in Southern Ohio, a farmer by the name of Ellsworth Fiddler lives with his son, Eddie, and his wife, Eula.

De l'Ohio à la Virginie-Occidentale, de la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale aux années 60, les destins de plusieurs personnages se mêlent et s'entrechoquent. Williard Russell, rescapé de l'enfer du Pacifique, revient au pays hanté par des visions d'horreur. Lorsque sa femme Charlotte tombe gravement malade, il est prêt à tout pour la sauver, même s'il ne doit rien épargner à son fils, Arvin.
