The Harder They ComeLarge Print - 2015 | First HarperLuxe edition
"On a cruise to Central America, seventy-year-old Sten Stensen kills an armed robber menacing a busload of tourists. The reluctant hero is relieved to return home to Fort Bragg, California--only to find that his delusional son, Adam, has become involved with Sara, a hardened member of a right-wing anarchist group. Adam's senior by fifteen years, she becomes his protector and inamorata. As Adam's mental state fractures, he becomes increasingly schizophrenic--on the run after two shooting incidents, he takes to the woods, spurring the biggest manhunt in California history. As he explores a father's legacy of violence and his powerlessness in relating to his equally violent son, T.C. Boyle offers unparalleled insights into the American psyche. Inspired by a true story, The Harder They Come is an indelible novel from a modern master"--Back cover.
