When Dell Parsons, the 15-years-old narrator of Richard Ford's new novel, Canada (Ecco), discovers that his parents are bank robbers and then witnesses two murders, his life flies apart. We examine the oppositions that define his experiences: America versus Canada, male versus female, family love versus abandonment.
