Het boek voor de fictieleesclub, april 2016

The Shore. A collection of small islands sticking out from the coast of Virginia into the Atlantic Ocean. The Shore takes the force of hurricanes, and grows so much food that it rots on the vine. The Shore is clumps of evergreens, wild ponies, oyster-shell roads, tumble-down houses, unwanted pregnancies, murder, storm-making, dark magic in the marshes.

The novel features various generations over the course of 150 years in interconnecting stories, and we observe a sequence of lives on the Shore – the small miracles and miseries of a community of outsiders, and the bonds of blood and fate that connect them all. In its audacious interweaving of stories, it recalls David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas, Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad and Ulverton by Adam Thorpe.
