The Divide

The Divide

Author: Nicholas Evans Format: Paperback Release Date: 10/08/2006

The title illustrates many facets of division in this compelling book, his best since The Horse Whisperer.  In chapter one we are presented with a girl’s body embedded in the ice on a mountainside in Montana and the mystery begins, not with the girl’s identity but with why she came to be there.  Picking through the past, watching the characters change over the years and manipulating our emotions with theirs, Evans has produced a powerful, sensitive tale of a family falling apart, of the ideology of youth turning sour and of the pain of love, all centred around eco-terrorism.  It is very good indeed.

When this book was first published back in 1995 there was a huge buzz surrounding it as Evans had been paid one of the largest advances for submitting just the first few chapters but the faith his editor had in him was justified and this is still a novel that sells and sells. If this one has still not made it to your reading list then do put it there as it’s a wonderful, beautiful read.

The next century will see more than half of the world's 6,000 languages become extinct, and most of these will disappear without being adequately recorded. Written by one of the leading figures in language documentation, this fascinating book explores what humanity stands to lose as a result. * Explores the unique philosophy, knowledge, and cultural assumptions of languages, and their impact on our collective intellectual heritage* Questions why such linguistic diversity exists in the first place, and how can we can best respond to the challenge of recording and documenting these fragile oral traditions while they are still with us* Written by one of the leading figures in language documentation, and draws on a wealth of vivid examples from his own field experience* Brings conceptual issues vividly to life by weaving in portraits of individual 'last speakers' and anecdotes about linguists and their discoveries
