Description of Run by Ann Patchett PDF
The “Run” is an interesting story of family dynamics and the definition of a family however it is composed. Ann Patchett is the author of this book. Another wonderful Ann Patchett novel. The characters is so well developed, and is so believable. Ann Patchett has the marvelous ability to write about family relationships in a way that the end of the book is always a surprise. Such a well told story, impeccable detailing. “Run” is a beautifully crafted novel but a lifetime in the history of one Boston family. A former Mayor of Boston, Bernard Doyle, and his wife, Bernadette, adopt two African-American boys, Teddy and Tip, to add to their existing family. When Bernadette dies, Bernard and the boys struggles to maintain a fragile composure. Tip, the more serious son, heads into the study of Marine Biology while his charming brother Teddy tries to find his way in the world. Bernard pushes the boys towards politics, but neither Teddy, Tip, nor their older brother, Sullivan, wants anything to do with Bernard’s former business. The slender thread that binds these different men together finally frays on a single, snowy night in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Following a lecture at Harvard, Tip and Bernard get into a heated argument about Tip’s future. Walking backward, Tip steps into the street, right into the path of an oncoming car. A stranger from the crowd tackles Tip, saving him from being hit, but winds up taking the brunt of the car’s impact.
This seemingly small Good Samaritan act sets off a chain reaction in the lives of the Doyle men that changes the course of their future, and informs an understanding of their past. Ann Patchett’s feel for language and the subtle nuances of character is nothing short of brilliant as she untangles Teddy and Tip’s origins. The woman, who saved Tip, it turns out, was not a random stranger, but his biological mother, Tennessee. She has been watching over them since the day she gave them up for adoption. Patchett’s incredibly moving account of Tennessee’s past and her motivations for giving up her sons is one of the highlights of this emotionally sophisticated tale. And as we learn the truth about Tennessee’s ten-year old daughter, Kenya, an accomplished runner, told in a remarkably clever scene as Tennessee lies gravely injured in the hospital, all the seemingly random threads of this complex story fall into place at last. Gorgeously written, emotionally mature, and deeply satisfying, Ann Patchett is a master storyteller at the top of her craft.
