Kings of the Earth by Jon Clinch
Friday Finds is hosted by Should Be Reading.
Here’s the blurb for the author’s website:
Together since birth on a hardscrabble farm, the three Proctor brothers work and live side by side—until one morning, when only two of them wake up. In KINGS OF THE EARTH, the people of an upstate New York town raise their voices one by one—to sort out the differences between death by natural causes, mercy killing, and murder.
My book club just finished Jon Clinch’s first book, Finn which I reviewed here. We discussed it last night and overall, everyone thought it was a good book pick. There was plenty to discuss. A few felt that the graphic details were a bit heavy-handed. I felt that they helped define Finn as a person. Surprisingly, several had not read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn but many plan to do so now after reading Finn.
Kings of the Earth is his next book but it doesn’t come out until July 2010. That’s a long time for me to wait as I definitely want to read it.
