    I feel sorry for the next book I pick up When I love a read as much as Inland the subseuent story or two usually pales unfairly in the afterglow This is a work of historical fiction a panoramic western in the great tradition of Cath

    DNF at 30% It may be my reading mood but I've picked this up several times and I am not connecting with the story nor the characters The story was just striking me as disjointed

    “We were bound up you and IThough it break our hearts we had as little choice then as we have now”This is one of those books that I’ve been dreading writing the review for because nothing I say can really convey what makes it so great  I like literary fiction but it’s rare that I will pick up anything that’s straight up literature

A momentous expedition across the West The way in which Nora's and Lurie's stories intertwine is the surprise and suspense of this brilliant novelMythical lyrical and sweeping in scope Inland is grounded in true but little known history It showcases all of Téa Obreht's talents as a writer as she subverts and reimagines the myths of the American West making them entirely and unforgettably her own We were bound up you and IThough it break our hearts we had as little choice then as we have now This is one of those books that I ve been dreading writing the review for because nothing I say can really convey what makes it so great I like literary fiction but it s rare that I will pick up anything that s straight up literature This particular book interested me for two reasons the historical western context and the promise of supernatural elementsInland doesn t disappoint on either front The story follows two main characters Lurie of the Mattie gang and Nora Lark of a small town called Amargo in the Arizona territory It isn t until the very end that the reader comes to understand how and why these two stories are being told side by side That s all I m saying about that because it s just better that you know nothing going inThis is a character driven story with Nora s part of it happening over I think the course of one day from morning to night She often reminisces on things that happened in the past her relationship with her husband and people in the town the birth and lives of her children etc These parts can be very slow but they all contribute to painting the picture of Nora s life and the people in itLife in Arizona isn t easy and every day has been a struggle There are a few supernatural elements to her story as well Her niece by marriage Josie is a medium conducting seances with the dead and her son Toby has been seeing a strange beast roaming their land Nora believes both things are just figments of wild imaginations And what did you ever learn from me save to keep to yourself and look over your shoulder In contrast to Nora we have Lurie He s a Turkish immigrant that is orphaned as a child and eventually falls in with the Mattie gang He gets on the wrong side of the law early in the book and we follow his story as he runs from Marshall Berger and from his past Lurie also has a supernatural ability to see and speak to the dead If they touch him he feels their last wants and they consume him as his own needsThe contrast in their stories is brilliant Between the two of these characters it s easy to assume Lurie would be the least likable and that the reader would come to care deeply for Nora the struggling innocent ranch wife But Obreht brilliantly turns this assumption on it s head by making Nora the unlikeable of the two She can sometimes be cruel to those around her including her husband and children but most of all her niece and she holds some clear prejudices against the local native population Meanwhile Lurie proves himself to be a man capable of caring deeply for others and a man maybe searching for redemption The longer I livethe I have come to understand that extraordinary people are eroded by their worries while the useless are carried ever forward by their delusions Despite it s slow pacing the book is so hard to put down Different little mysteries are introduced along the way while other interesting little connections and reveals are being made not between Nora and Lurie but within the narrative of each of their separate lives Different story elements and characters in the story return at the most unexpected times keeping the reader surprised throughout It s a dramatic story that feels perfectly mundane and I m still in awe of itLurie s parts are written in second person though I won t tell you who he is addressing The writing itself is gorgeous It isn t as impactful as say The Mere Wife but it s emotional and often left me feeling a little wistful By the end of it I was in tearsThis review has probably rambled on for far too long already and I haven t remotely done the book justice Just know if any part of this story or review appeals to you at all it s well worth picking up and reading through to the end where the reveals and realizations will surprise and haunt you for a long time to come Thank you to the publisher for providing an ARC for review Dangerous

R the parched household and her elder sons who have vanished after an explosive argument Nora is biding her time with her youngest son who is convinced that a mysterious beast is stalking the land around their homeLurie is a former outlaw and a man haunted by ghosts He sees lost souls who want something from him and he finds reprieve from their longing in an unexpected relationship that inspires I feel sorry for the next book I pick up When I love a read as much as Inland the subseuent story or two usually pales unfairly in the afterglow This is a work of historical fiction a panoramic western in the great tradition of Cather McCarthy and Portis but author T a Obreht is too skilled a writer to be confined by expectations and conventions of genre She writes with such urgency and empathy with wonder for her story and compassion for her characters that this reader was simply swept away in the moment carried on the current of a brilliant narrative through a parched land where drops of water are as precious as flakes of gold I think of recent historical fiction by the outstanding William Kent Kruger and Mary Doria Russell and those novels now seem plodding and clunky compared to the ethereal grace of Obrecht s InlandTwo stories unfold one expanding over four decades the other in a span of hours until they come together in the novel s final gutting pages that left me sobbing the smallest hours of the morning Lurie an immigrant and wanted man hustles west from an Eastern seaport where he landed from Bosnia as a boy He attaches himself to bands of itinerants and outlaws trying to outrun his own WANTED poster He finds himself astride a camel imported as pack animals by the Army which supposed the beasts well suited to the desert west of the Arizona Territory His compatriots hail from Greece Turkey and the ancient cultures of the Levant places we don t typically associate with the settlement of the American West Lurie spins out his long tale to his beloved companion the stalwart camel Burke Her throat aching with thirst Nora Lark homesteads with her husband Emmett and three sons in a little mining district between Phoenix and Flagstaff Emmett is three days late returning with their water supply and the morning after a heated argument with Nora the two older Lark sons disappear in search of their father Nora is left on the forlorn property with fragile seven year old Toby stroke addled Grandma and her husband s scatterbrained young cousin Josie who claims to commune with the spirit world Nora maintains a heartrending patter with her daughter Evelyn who died of heatstroke as an infant but in conversation is a sophisticated and articulate foil to the cruel unforgiving land that her family survives in Nora carries a slow burning torch for Sheriff Harlan Bell with whom she has a shadowy unreuited love that is full of longing and empathy Their few scenes together are full of aching desire their loneliness epitomizing the beautiful terrible landscape that shifts between silence and violence in a heartbeatObreht creates a breathless tension as Lurie s and Nora s stories track toward collision The desiccated land is haunted with ghosts menaced by drought and starvation riders appearing on the horizon are unknown as friend or foe until they reach shotgun distance And yet the cast of characters retains an enchanting humanity with Nora tough broken resolute and loving the greatest among them It s been eight years since T a Obreht s celebrated debut The Tiger s Wife which I lauded for its beautiful prose but lamented the lack of connection to character and the overwrought fabulism Inland is the work of an author deeply in touch with her rich cast allowing them agency in this exuisitely rendered story I didn t expect to love Inland as much as I did given the low rating here I m so very glad I ignored the naysayers to discover this unusual luminous novelAlso I love camels
