about this item

Paul Harding's beautiful and melancholy debut novel tells the story of George Washington Crosby, a New England clock repairman, as he lies on his deathbed, remembering his life and the life of his father, a traveling salesman afflicted by epileptic seizures. TINKERS's rich language, powerful evocation of memory, and subtle sense of tragedy all mark the arrival of a singularly gifted new writer. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the 100 Best Books of 2009, and winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
On his deathbed, surrounded by his family, George Washington Crosby's throughts drift back to his childhood and the father who abandoned him when he was twelve.
