FROM THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED AUTHOR OF THE LONGSHOT comes this gripping saga about the destruction of a family, a home, and a way of life. Set on a struggling farm in a colonial country teetering on the brink of civil war, Gone to the Forest is a tale of family drama and political turmoil in which fiery storytelling melds with daring, original prose. Since his mother's death, Tom and his father have fashioned a strained domestic peace, where everything is frozen under the old man's vicious control. But when a young woman named Carine arrives at the farm, the tension between the two men escalates to the breaking point. Hailed by the Boston Globe as "a major talent," Kitamura shines in this powerful new novel.

This is more a sledge hammer than a book. Highly recommended to any and all masochists. Subject is colonialism and the world is rife with good books that fit the bill.
