Awards
Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction Best Book (nominee)
Reissued to coincide with THAT OLD ACE IN THE HOLE (Jan 03), the new novel from the Pulitzer-prize winning author of 'The Shipping News'. In 'Accordion Crimes' the hallucinatory power of Proulx's language and the radiance of her sentences confirm her genius. Accordion Crimes is a masterpiece of story-telling that spans a century and a continent. It opens in 1890 in Sicily, when an accordion maker and his son, carrying little more than his finest button accordion, begin their voyage to the teeming, violent port of New Orleans. Within a year, the accordion maker is murdered by an anti-Italian lynch mob, but his instrument carries the novel into another community of immigrants, German-Americans, founding a new town in South Dakota. Moving from South Dakota to Texas, from Montana to Maine, the nine instantly compelling and intricately connected sections of the novel illuminate the lives of the founders of a nation, descendants of Mexicans, Poles, Germans, the Irish, Scots, and Franco-Canadians. Through the music of the accordion they express their fantasies, sorrows and exuberance.
