Michael Ondaatje “Divisadero”
June 2nd, 2007
In Northern California in the 1970s, a widower is raising his daughter Anna, an adopted daughter named Claire, and an orphan boy nicknamed Coop. Theirs is an unorthodox family, three siblings related by common bond instead of blood. But when two of them begin a sexual relationship, their father explodes in a stunning moment of violence, and the family is shattered.
This is Michael Ondaatje‘s new novel “Divisadero,” a story spanning years and continents as it tells the story of these three individuals — and of another, whose own narrative is at once removed and intimately connected.
