    PDF/EPUB Tom Drury µ µ The Driftless Area ePUB ë The Driftless PDF/EPUB ² driftless pdf, area epub, The Driftless free, The Driftless Area PDF/EPUBDo you believe in fate? is the uestion posed by Pierre Hunter the hapless hero of The Driftless Area Tom Drury's lapidary fairy tale set in an anomalous region of northern Iowa It is of course the wrong uestion but Pierre can be forgiven; he has just fallen through river ice and had his life saved by a beautiful woman with whom he has predictably fallen in love The correct uestion as it turns out is has the future already happened? and as a corollary does the little old drifter who wanders through the story merely know the future or can he manipulate it? These are the uestions that stay with you long after you have all too uickly finished the book Drury's humor is insidious and deadpan; it is subterranean based on the uotidian interactions of the characters he has created Two perfectly straightforward sentences will be followed by a third which will stand the passage on its head and make you laugh out loud It is truly wonderful I don't usually look at what other readers have written
