Synopsis : A ?finely wrought, flawlessly written? novel (New York Times Book Review), set on a small island in the Puget Sound, that is ?at various moments a courtroom drama, an interracial love story, and a war chronicle? (San Francisco Chronicle). ?Guterson has fashioned something haunting and true? (Pico Iyer, Time). Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award. A fall 1999 major motion picture.

Critique: Ishmael Chambers, the one-man staff of the newspaper on San Piedro Island in Puget Sound, is covering the 1954 trial of a high school classmate accused of killing another classmate over a land dispute. Actor Peter Marinker--a stage veteran who has appeared in such movies as The Russia House and The Emerald Forest--takes us deep inside the world created by David Guterson in his award-winning 1994 novel. We learn the sensory details of life in a small fishing community; the emotional lives of people scarred inside and out by World War II; and the deep and unresolved prejudices toward the island's Japanese Americans, who were interned during the war--a tragedy that led to financial advantage for some islanders. Marinker deliberately but nimbly moves from the characters' distinctive voices to the poignant interior perspectives of the soulful, wounded Chambers as he tells a combination love story, murder mystery, and painful history lesson. (Running time: 15 hours, 10 cassettes) --Lou Schuler
