Nailed the local color.,
This review is from: Big White Knuckles (Paperback)
Tucker profoundly renders the local atmosphere of the typical mining town in "Big Wjite Knuckles". All the characters that make up his father's gang would be found in several communities in Cape Breton during the industrial peak of the 20th century.
Tucker's main character is not like his buddies or his ancestors..he wants to be but he just isn't.
He is sensitive and compassionate and sees life through his artistic eye. Despite a wild and rough hewn childhhood, he retains his art and ultimately follows it.
Colorfully presented with humor, love, romance and prickly reality.
