The devil all the time : a novel

"The Devil All the Time" is a hauntingly intense portrait of America and a shattering vision of violence and redemption. Set in rural southern Ohio and West Virginia, it follows a cast of riveting and bizarre characters from the end of the Second World War to the 1960s. Willard Russell is a tormented veteran of the carnage in the South Pacific who can't save his beautiful wife, Charlotte, from a slow death by cancer no matter how much sacrificial blood he pours on his 'prayer log'. Carl and Sandy Henderson, a husband-and-wife team of serial killers, trawl America's highways searching for suitable models to photograph and exterminate. The spider-handling preacher Roy, and his crippled virtuoso-guitar-playing sidekick, Theodore, are running from the law. And caught in the middle of all this is Arvin Eugene Russell, Willard and Charlotte's orphaned son, who grows up to be a good but also violent man in his own right.

  • "Zwei Lebensfluchten kollidieren, eine auf dem Weg in die Verdammnis, die andere aus ihr heraus. Der junge Arvin wächst in den fünfziger Jahren im heruntergekommenen Niemandsland des Mittleren Westens auf. Hier hat sich der amerikanische Traum in einen fiebrigen Albtraum verwandelt, der bevölkert wird von psychopathischen Verbrechern, korrupten Sheriffs und religiösen Fanatikern. Arvin ringt um einen Ausweg aus dieser Welt. Doch als seine Freundin vom Ortsprediger missbraucht wird und sich daraufhin erhängt, nimmt auch er das Gesetz in die eigene Hand. Zur gleichen Zeit, nur wenige Meilen entfernt, brechen die beiden Serienkiller Carl und Sandy zur Jagd auf. Sie locken arglose Tramper in ihren Wagen, um sie dort auf brutale Art und Weise umzubringen. Irgendwo in der Tiefe des Hinterlandes, in jenem unsichtbaren Grenzgebiet zwischen Zivilisation und archaischer Grausamkeit, kreuzen sie schliesslich Arvins Weg ... Unaufhaltsam verstrickt Pollock seine Leser in ein undurchdringliches Labyrinth des Bösen. "Das Handwerk des Teufels" ist ein ebenso verstörender wie mitreissender Roman über den epischen Kampf zwischen Schicksal und Moral, Schuld und Gerechtigkeit. Die Hoffnung stirbt immer zuletzt. Aber sie stirbt. Donald Ray Pollock, geboren 1954, wuchs im US-Bundesstaat Ohio auf. Mit siebzehn Jahren brach er die Highschool ab und nahm einen Job in einer Fleischfabrik an. Danach arbeitete er über dreissig Jahre in einer Papiermühle, zumeist als Lastwagenfahrer. Ende der achtziger Jahre holte er in Abendkursen seinen Schulabschluss nach und schrieb sich an der Ohio State University ein. 2008 erschien sein literarisches Debüt, der von der amerikanischen Presse gefeierte Erzählungsband "Knockemstiff""
