Product description


The spare, emotionally eloquent style of Chris Knopf s first novel, The Last Refuge, gives shapely form to the confessional story narrated by Sam Acquillo . . . the characters are such original oddballs and their conversation so bracing you want to kick off your shoes and spend some time on the porch with them, just taking in the view and enjoying the talk. The New York Times Sams rediscovery of himself in middle age is the real focus in this accomplished debut novel, which also boasts outstanding dialogue and a vividly rendered setting. Expect to hear more from Knopf; he is definitely a writer to watch. --Booklist (starred review)

Take one hard-boiled burnout, add an eastern Long Island setting and a cynical sense of humour, throw in a sweetheart of a dog and you ve got The Last Refuge. But there is plenty more to this excellent debut novel. --Rocky Mountain News

Knopf has a wonderfully light and deft touch with the English language (dialogue is a strong suit) and uses it to good effect in telling this most pleasing story. --Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine --This text refers to the paperback edition.
