Blackstrap Hawco is an ambitious book, far-reaching, deliberately complex, blunt, ruthless and lyrical. The main character, Blackstrap Hawco, is typical of the group. Mentally unbalanced, he and his cohorts endure tragedy after tragedy, quite a few of them self induced. a loving tribute to the uniqueness of Newfoundland. Blackstrap Hawco is in every way a large novel: large in scope, large in ambition, and large in achievement. You would be hard pressed to find another group of such unlikeable characters.
Blackstrap Hawco is a novel with a lot of hype associated with it. If the front flap of the book is to be believed, it took Kenneth J. Harvey 15 years to write it, and it clocks in at an epic masterwork length of more than 800 pages
Blackstrap Hawco is a novel with a lot of hype associated with it. Harvey 15 years to write it, and it clocks in at an epic masterwork length of more than 800 pages. It purports to be probably the first sweeping generational epic of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and its peoples, and is a transcomposite narrative, meaning that it is neither a historical document, nor a work of outright fiction
As the end of the 20th century nears, the Hawco family's bloodlines have grown tainted and confused
Fifteen years in the making, this book is the one Canada's "heavyweight champ of brash and beautiful literature" was meant to write.
