characters Landed by Tim Pears Tim Pears ¹ 6 Summary Summary ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ¹ Tim Pears Working as a gardener He meets Mel they have children He believes he has found happiness and love of a sort But following a car accident in which his daughter is killed and he loses a hand the course of his life and the lives of those he loves is changed forever Owen unable to work alienated and eventually legally separated from his family is haunted by suicidal thoughts In his despair he resolves to reconnec. Remarkably disturbing book Can t stop thinking about its unusual structure and feeling the depth of sadness portrayed in it The novel is compared to those of Kent Haruf and that is perhaps because much of it takes place out of doors and because the emotional plot moves forward through the descriptions of action almost entirely Even emotions are betrayed as physical sensations
