Publisher Comments:

From the National Book Award-winning author of Arctic Dreams, a highly charged, stunningly original work of fiction-a passionate response to the changes shaping our country today. In nine fictional testimonies, men and women who have resisted the mainstream and who are now suddenly “parties of interest” to the government tell their stories.A young woman in Buenos Aires watches bitterly as her family dissolves in betrayal and illness, but chooses to seek a new understanding of compassion rather than revenge. A carpenter traveling in India changes his life when he explodes in an act of violence out of proportion to its cause. The beginning of the end of a mans lifelong search for coherence is sparked by a Montana grizzly. A man blinded in the war in Vietnam wrestles with the implications of his actions as a soldier-and with innocence, both lost and regained.Punctuated with haunting images by acclaimed artist Alan Magee, Resistance is powerful fiction with enormous significance for our times.

Bella the Deacon, May 27, 2010 (view all comments by Bella the Deacon)
What an imagination! Lopez' nine captivating stories divulge widely varied and intriguing lives of their fictional authors. These vignettes are summoned by contemporary government threats let loose in his opening vignette. Although its range is mostly believeable, one wonders how the real stories of more ordinary resistant citizens might fare through Lopez' magnificent creativity.
