Snapper

Snapper

With wry humour and real freshness, SNAPPER charts the disastrous love affair between career birdwatcher Nathan Lochmueller and the place that made him.

Set in a brilliantly observed rural Indiana, ‘the bastard son of the Midwest’, SNAPPER is a book about birdwatching, a woman who won’t stay true, and a pick-up truck that won’t start. Here turtles eat alligators for breakfast, Klansmen skulk in the undergrowth, and truckers drop into the diner of a town named Santa Claus to ensure that no child’s Christmas letter goes unanswered, while Nathan grapples with the eternal question: should I stay, or should I go? Kimberling’s vision of small-town life is as characterful as Garrison Keillor’s Lake Wobegon, but bristling with the tensions of race, class, poverty and prejudice, it makes for a bracing read.
