Patrick Lane’s Red Dog, Red Dog is a tale of blood, loyalty and redemption. The novel centers on Eddy and Tom Stark, two brothers struggling with their hardscrabble inheritance in the Okanagan Valley. Theirs is a fiercely unforgiving world, and, for the reader, an unforgettable one.

Patrick Lane’s Red Dog, Red Dog is a tale of blood, loyalty and redemption. The strength of Lane’s perfectly cadenced prose may bring to mind Faulkner, Cormac McCarthy and, inevitably, The Bible. There is a deep wisdom in this book and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Richard Bachman, A Different Drummer Books.

Red dogs and Americans. There is a Night of the Hunter element to the landscape described in Lane's formidable debut, in which the natural world of British Columbia bears silent witness to the Stark family's unredeemable past and present. Father Elmer, brutalised as a child, inflicts similar treatment on sons Eddy and Tom. Mother Lillian, once an arch seductress, becomes agoraphobic, sequestered Miss Havisham-like in her bedroom.

Even the Dogs by Jon McGregor. What the Stones Remember by Patrick Lane. happy sad. funny serious.

I found this book unbearably sad. The story is brutal and shocking but beautifully written which only makes it even more haunting. It will stay with me for a long time. Even the Dogs by Jon McGregor.

A National Bestseller and a Globe and Mail Best Book of the YearOne of the most powerful, gripping works of fiction to come out of Canada, Red Dog, Red Dog is Patrick Lane’s virtuoso debut novel.An epic novel of unrequited dreams and forestalled lives, Red Dog, Red Dog is set in the mid-1950s, in a small town in the interior of B.C. in the unnamed Okanagan Valley. The novel focuses on the Stark family, centring on brothers Eddy and Tom, who are bound together by family loyalty and inarticulate love. There is Tom and Eddy’s father, Elmer Stark, a violent man with a troubled past, and Lillian, who married as a girl to escape life on the farm with her widowed mother, and now retreats into her own isolation. Unrepentant, bitter, older brother Eddy speeds freely along, his desperate path fuelled by drugs and weapons, while Tom, a loner, attempts to conceal their secrets and protect what remains of the family. Eventually, an unspeakable crime causes him to come face to face with something traumatic that has lain hidden in him since he was a boy. Narrated in part by one of the dead infant daughters Elmer has buried, the story unfolds gradually, as it weaves in family stories that reach back to the depression days and the harsh life of settlers in the 1880s West.This is also a novel about a small community of people, about complicated loyalties, about betrayals and shifts of power. Filled with moments of harrowing violence and breathtaking description, of shattering truths and deep humanity, Red Dog, Red Dog is about the legacies of the past and the possibilities of forgiveness and redemption. With this astonishing novel, one of Canada’s best poets propels himself into the forefront of our finest novelists.

This book was a good read but it was predictable and the ending was too obscure. Characterization was well thought out.

A Book Review

Red Dog Red Dog
by Patrick Lane

It amazes me. Settlers crossing North America in the 1800's.

The hardships they had to endure. Covered wagons, hostile Indians, winter. Food. Eating their dogs.

Hard to believe, in this day and age just how large North America really was.
To cross the continent, the trip took months.
People were totally ignorant of the dangers and just weren't prepared for such a journey.

The story opens in the middle of the Saskatchewan prairies, with just such settlers, the death of a baby girl, who only lived for seven days.
These were hard and enduring times, the lawlessness, the hunger. Unwanted births. It's hard to imagine.

Generations later, the story turns to, two Stark brothers, Tom and Eddy, opposites. The year 1958, the place - the Okanagan Valley.

This novel is very black. There is no happiness to be had on any page and believe me I was hoping to find some just to relieve the agony I felt. The careless disregard for anything living. No matter human or...

If you're a dog lover don't read this book. Describes dog husbandry for profit and fighting extensively.

I have to remember it's only a book. That was then this is now. We've come along way baby, just in compassion alone. Then you occasionally hear stories of people like Michael Vick and this is 2013 not 1958 when it was more common.

Patrick Lane has a style his own, maybe a little flowery with his descriptions but very believable characters and in your face situations. Abuse, incest, rape, murder all in one book.

I enjoyed this book. It was a real down to earth history lesson.
I give it two thumbs up, reluctantly, because it was a good read. It kept my attention from page one to the end. If there would have been one moment of happiness I'd have no reason to complain, but there wasn't and I was left feeling uneasy and spent.

Maybe that's how I am supposed to feel.

"...where a bone cage could last a thousand years under the moon [...] The hills rose parched from the still lakes, the mountains beyond them faded to a mauve so pale they seemed stones under ice." There can be vibrant beauty in harsh, sparse, desert-like landscapes, so much better suited to animals than to human beings. Evoking its atmosphere through achingly beautiful flowing lyrical language, depicting its intricate details, award winning Canadian poet and author Patrick Lane captures the essence of the atypical landscape of the northern edge of the Great Plains in Canada. Contrasting environment with the bleak reality of life for the people who inhabit this wild and unforgiving land, Lane has created a powerful, thought-provoking and at times challenging and unsettling novel.

Set in 1958 in a small remote community in the southern Okanagan region, the story centres on the two Stark brothers, their family and a group of friends, enemies and neighbours. While the actual events take place in the space of a week, the narrative moves in flashbacks to previous generations and the early settler years. After roaming through the Prairies since his early teenage years in search of work, whether as a farm hand, in mills or as day labourer, Father Elmer Stark has settled his family here in a place of "even more desolate towns that turned into villages, villages into clusters of trailers and isolated shacks in the trees, nothing beyond that bush that ran clear to the tundra." The people, carrying the inherited burden of poverty and misery are still suffering from the late fallout of the Depression in that region. In their struggle to make ends meet they easily turn to violence, alcohol and drugs, petty and major crimes.

With a few strokes, Lane creates vivid characters within complex relationships. The Stark brothers, Tom and Eddy, are an excellent study in contrast. "For Eddy, the world was without borders. He learned that from both Father and Mother. [...] Eddy's crimes and misdemeanours, the things he did and didn't do, were just part of his life". Tom was very different. "He could get lost in stories of other places and other lives [...]For Eddy, stories about the past, anyone's past, were deadly and he wanted none of it." From a very young age, Tom quietly, often undetected, listened to the stories Father told Alice, the baby sister who died just short of six months old. It was his way of mourning at his daughter's grave. While Lane depicts the many action scenarios with cinematographic precision, he evokes the changing moods and behaviours of the various individuals with a combination of disgust, understanding and compassion. Compassion? Yes, empathy comes to the fore when Alice's spirit takes over part of the novel's narrative, creating a gentle, caring countervailing force in her depiction of the family's history and current struggle against misery. The brothers' deep bond and caring love for each other transcends all differences and is one of the moving features of the story. And not only here, a glimmer of positive change emerges over time, offering hope to those who can make it their own.

This is not an easy novel to read. The poetic beauty of Lane's language does not always fit or alleviate the sense of irritation and displeasure the reader feels with, especially, the precise description of arbitrary violence and careless disregard of others. However, drawing on his own wide-ranging experiences and a deep familiarity with the land and the region's stories, Lane captures a place and its inhabitants that is authentic as it was real in the specific region and period of time. It is a powerful and an significant book that allows important lessons to be drawn, especially when addressing issues of disenchanted and malleable youth. An amazing achievement for a debut novel by a poet of long standing. [Friederike Knabe]

I read this novel in a Canadian paperback edition, not on a Kindle.
