Beschreibung

In the tradition Huckleberry Finn and The Catcher in the Rye, Russell Bankss quintessential novel of a disaffectedhomeless youth living on the edge of society redefines the young modern anti-hero....Rule of the Bone has its own culture and language, and Bone is sure to become a beloved character for generations (San Francisco Chronicle). When we first meet him, Chappie is a punked-out teenager living with his mother and abusive stepfather in an upstate New York trailer park. During this time, he slips into drugs and petty crime. Rejected by his parents, out of school and in trouble with the police, he claims for himself a new identity as a permanent outsider; he gets a crossed-bones tattoo on his arm, and takes the name "e;Bone."e;He finds dangerous refuge with a group of biker-thieves, and then hides in the boarded-up summer house of a professor and his wife. He finally settles in an abandoned school bus with Rose, a child he rescues from a fast-talking pedophile. There Bone meets I-Man, an exiled Rastafarian, and together they begin a second adventure that takes the reader from Middle America to the ganja-growing mountains of Jamaica. It is an amazing journey of self-discovery through a world of magic, violence, betrayal and redemption.With a compelling, off-beat protagonist evocative of Holden Caulfield and Quentin Coldwater, and a narrative voice that masterfully and naturally captures the nuances of a modern vernacular, Bankss haunting and powerful novel is an indisputableand unforgettablemodern classic.
