Gravesend

Author: William Boyle Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/03/2020

Some worship him and some want him dead, but either way, tensions run high when Ray Boy Calabrese is released from prison. It's been sixteen years since Ray Boy's actions led to the death of a young man. The victim's brother, Conway D'Innocenzio, is a 29-year-old Brooklynite wasting away at a local Rite Aid, stuck in the past and drawn into a darker side of himself when he hears of Ray Boy's freedom. But even with the perfect plan in place, Conway can't bring himself to take the ultimate revenge on Ray Boy, which sends him into a spiral of self-loathing and soul-searching. Meanwhile, Alessandra, a failed actress, returns to her native Gravesend after the death of her cancer-stricken mother, torn between the desperate need to escape back to Los Angeles as quickly as possible and the ease with which she could sink back into neighborhood life. Alessandra and Conway are walking eerily similar paths-staring down the rest of their lives, caring for their aging fathers, lost in the youths they squandered-and each must decide what comes next. In the tradition of American noir authors like Dennis Lehane and James Ellroy, William Boyle's Gravesend brings the titular neighborhood to life in this story of revenge, desperation, and escape.

Ray Boy Calabrese wird aus dem Gefangnis entlassen. Wahrend seiner Schulzeit hat er einen Jungen wegen seines Schwulseins gequalt, ihn zusammen mit Freunden geschlagen, getreten, sodass Duncan nur die Flucht blieb und er uberfahren wurde. Vor Gericht nannten sie es Hate Crime, ein sexistisch motiviertes Verbrechen. Nun kommt Ray Boy Calabrese aus der Haft frei und will nur noch sterben. Duncans Bruder Conway hat Rache geschworen, lernt schieen und trifft nicht. Er ist neunundzwanzig, arbeitet in einem Rite Aid und wohnt bei seinem Vater Pope. Mit Ray Boys Heimkehr in sein altes Viertel reien die nur leicht ubertunchten Risse in der Familie auf, in der er aufgewachsen ist. Wahrend sein Neffe Eugene in ihm ein Idol sieht und bitter enttauscht ist, dass sein Held zu einem gebrochenen Mann geworden ist. William Boyles "e;Gravesend"e; geht der Frage nach, inwieweit wir zur Vergebung fahig sind. Anderen und uns selbst gegenuber. Denn uns selbst gegenuber sind wir unerbittlich, wenn es umm Traume und Hoffnungen geht.
