Summary

Award-winning short story writer Ron Carlson delivers a stirring novel about three men confronting their pasts and their purpose Beloved story writer Ron Carlsons first novel in thirty years, ''Five Skies'' is the story of three men gathered high in the Rocky Mountains for a construction project that is to last the summer. Having participated in a spectacular betrayal in Los Angeles, the giant, silent Arthur Key drifts into work as a carpenter in southern Idaho. Here he is hired, along with the shiftless and charming Ronnie Panelli, to build a stunt ramp beside a cavernous void. The two will be led by Darwin Gallegos, the foreman of the local ranch who is filled with a primeval rage at God, at man, at life. As they endeavor upon this simple, grand project, the three reveal themselves in cautiously resonant, profound ways. And in a voice of striking intimacy and grace, Carlsons novel reveals itself as a story of biblical, almost spiritual force. A bellwether return from one of our greatest craftsmen, ''Five Skies'' is sure to be one of the most praised and cherished novels of the year.
