Overview

Corre el año 1954. La vida en el aserradero de una explotación forestal al norte de New Hampshire no resulta fácil y las desgracias están a la orden del día. Una noche, Dominic Baciagalupo, el cocinero del aserradero, y su hijo Danny, de doce años, se ven obligados a abandonar apresuradamente el lugar cuando Danny, en un fatal accidente, mata a la novia de un alguacil llamado Carl. Dominic y Danny inician entonces una extenuante huida, pues Carl, en su afán de venganza, los perseguirá primero hasta Boston, luego hasta Vermont e Iowa, y finalmente hasta Canadá. En cada ciudad a la que lleguen, padre e hijo se verán obligados a adaptarse a las costumbres y personas del lugar, a inventarse una nueva identidad... Sin darnos tregua, peripecia tras peripecia, John Irving nos sumerge de lleno en la vida estadounidense durante las últimas cinco décadas del siglo xx.
