World's end a novel

Haunted by the burden of his family's traitorous past, woozy with pot, cheap wine, and sex, and disturbed by a frighteningly real encounter with some family ghosts, Walter Van Brunt is about to have a collision with history. It will lead Walter to search for his lost father. And it will send the story into the past of the Hudson River Valley, from the late 1960s, back to the anticommunist riots of the 1940s, to the late seventeenth century, where the long-hidden secrets of three families - the aristocratic Van Warts, the Native American Mohonks, and Walter's own ancestors, the Van Brunts - will be revealed.

  • "Follows the interwoven destinies of three families: a family of Indians, a family of lordly Dutch patroons, and a family of yeomen."
  • "Geister der Vergangenheit suchen Walter Van Brunt an seinem 22. Geburtstag heim, und die Gedenktafel, gegen die er dann in der Nacht, betrunken und bekifft, mit seinem Motorrad rast, verweist auf ein Ereignis, das weit zurückliegt - und das auch mit Walter zu tun hat. Fortan macht er sich auf die Suche nach seinem verstorbenen Vater: Truman Van Brunt hat 20 Jahre zuvor, bei den berüchtigten Unruhen von Peterskill, der Gegenseite in die Hände gespielt und seine Frau in den Tod getrieben. Und die gleiche unheilvolle Geschichte von Treuebruch und Verrat hat sich vor noch viel längerer Zeit schon einmal zugetragen. Von den gleichen Geistern getrieben wie seine Vorfahren, muss Walter am Ende seinen eigenen Verrat teuer bezahlen. Mit immenser Phantasie, Sinn für schwarzen Humor und Überwirkliches hat Boyle eine dunklere Lesart der Geschichte Amerikas geschrieben."
