In This Moment : A Novel
This performer is, of course, a stand-in for Sayles himself, who has also built an elaborate house of tiles and managed, against all odds, to keep it standing. The book opens in , the year of the Klondike gold rush, and closes in , the year after the Philippine-American War ended, and in between it takes the measure of America on the brink of the 20th century. Variety is further served by alternating the narrative among four culturally diverse perspectives. The Western rover Hod Brackenridge, a former farmer and fired miner, goes to the Yukon, gets cheated out of his stake, becomes a boxer in fixed fights and, on the run from the law, enlists in the Army in Colorado. Tutored by an African-American and then a Native American, goodhearted Hod is an adult Huck Finn in the territory, and a consistently pleasurable presence.
