'Masterful...a classic parable of the human condition,' said Publishers Weekly about Ethan Canin's For Kings and Planets, and the same can be said about Canin's brilliant new novel, Carry me Across the Water Breathtaking in its suspense and beauty, Carry me Across the Water tells the story of a man and his family who forge their lives against the backdrop of World War II and the central years of the twentieth century. 'Take the advice of no one,' the young August Kleinman is told by his mother as around them in Hamburg, Germany, the Nazi party rises to power; and with these words to guide him, young August escapes to America, where he goes on to build a fortune, a family, and a life on his own daring terms. At the defining moments that reveal character and shape fate, August's bold journey illuminates, at the deepest levels, how our lives unfold. A shocking encounter with a Japanese soldier in a cave during World War II, an audacious decision to start a long-shot business in America, a lifelong passion for an Italian girl named Ginger, estrangement from his modern children, violence, and finally, atonement for the sins of his life.
