Discover this extraordinary and beautiful novel from one of America's greatest novelists. In rural Illinois two tenant farmers share much, finally too much, until jealously leads to murder and suicide.
A tenuous friendship between lonely teenagers - the narrator, whose mother has died young, and Cletus Smith, the troubled witness to his parent's misery - is shattered.
After the murder and upheavals that follow, the boys never speak again.
Fifty years on, the narrator attempts a reconstruction of those devastating events and the atonement of a lifetime's regret. **One of the BBC's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**
