KEENE - Ernest Hebert signing his new novel, "Never Back Down"
06/02/2012 11:00 am
Stop by on Sat., June 2 at 11:00 a.m. and say hello to Ernest Hebert!
In Never Back Down, Hebert's most autobiographical novel to date, Jack Landry is introduced as a promising high school baseball player from the mill town of Keene, New Hampshire. A young boy when the novel opens in July 1953, Jack and his best friend, Elphege, devise a motto to live by: Never back down, never instigate. It's a rule of stubborn passivity Jack will follow to the end of his days.
Hebert is a master storyteller who, in addition to creating memorable characters and gripping narratives, does not shy away from the big questions. In Never Back Down he raises more than a few. The portrait Hebert gives us of Jack Landry's life of menial labor, joie de vivre, and a love that just won't die not only raises these questions but answers them as well.
Ernest Hebert lives in New Hampshire and teaches writing at Dartmouth College.
