In 1949, George and Rufus Hamilton bludgeoned a taxi driver to death with a hammer in the dirt-poor settlement of Barker's Point, New Brunswick. Less than eight months later, the brothers were hanged for their crime. Although half a century has passed since then, the brutal murder lives on in New Brunswick. In George & Rue, George Elliott Clarke draws from this disturbing chapter in Canadian history, brilliantly reimagining the lives - and deaths - of the two brothers, Fiercely human and startlingly poignant, the novel shifts seamlessly through the two killers' pasts, examining what kind of forces would reduce these men to violent lives of crime. Infused with a sensual, rhythmic beauty, George & Rue is a masterful blend of fiction and reality from on of Canada's most daring and original writers.
