Jodi Picoult “Lone Wolf”
March 22nd, 2012
A man lies in a permanent vegetative state after a near-fatal crash in Jodi Picoult‘s novel “Lone Wolf,” as his adult son and almost-adult daughter engage in a bitter fight over what is to become of him.
Edward has been estranged from his father for years, after that kind of argument that drives people away, sometimes for good.
Cara, who is just shy of 18, is as close to her father as Edward is distant.
And they each think they know what is best for Luke Warren, a noted wolf researcher, whose voice is also heard in alternating chapters in Picoult’s book, giving her the opportunity to use a powerful wolf metaphor for what’s happening to the Warren family.
