Johanna Skibsrud “The Sentimentalists”
May 23rd, 2011
A young woman’s dauntless search for the truth about her dying father’s life is at the center of the debut novel by Johanna Skibsrud, “The Sentimentalists,” winner of Canada’s prestigious Giller Prize in 2010.
Whatever changed Napoleon Haskell, it happeened when he was in Vietnam a lifetime ago. Now as he’s slipping further into senility the story is slipping away with him, unless his daughter can capture it first. Giller Prize jurors praised “The Sentimentalists,” saying Skibsrud’s writing is “trip-wire taut as the exploration of guilt, family and duty unfolds.”
