Inhaltsangabe: Deep in the north woods of Minnesota, Paul Two Persons is struggling to keep his resort lodge afloat. He has lent money to his childhood friend, Al, and needs it back fast before the bank forecloses on his business.
When Al turns up missing -- and then dead of an apparent suicide -- Paul is propelled into a labyrinth of intrigue that leads to some ugly discoveries. There is corruption within his own Tribal Council, developers' plans for the land that Paul has fought so hard to keep, and the "accidental death" of his eight-year-old son that now seems something more sinister.
Haunted by these demons, growing increasingly distant from his grieving wife, and facing the very real threat of losing his livelihood, Paul feels he has become what the Chippewa call a tchibai -- a walking shadow. Attempts are made on his life, the lodge is nearly burned to the ground, and people on the reservation behave oddly in his presence.
The escalating circumstances of one summer -- and Paul's determination to survive them -- reveal the indomitable spirit that is his Chippewa heritage. Set in the breathtaking landscape of northwestern Minnesota, Don't Think Twice is a haunting and memorable story about a man's struggle when pushed to the edge.
Rezension: The North Lakes region of Minnesota is a place of breathtaking beauty--where thousands of small islands and lakes stretch as far as the eye can see. In his haunting second novel, Don't Think Twice, Wayne Johnson brilliantly evokes a sense of place--where people definitely do not have the upper hand. "On quiet mornings, a light mist rises off the water. There is something new about it all. Life here has just a toehold on these glacier-scarred basalt and granite islands." Johnson grew up on the White Earth and Red Lake reservations, and his novel tells the powerful story of one man's struggle to keep his land, and his dignity.
Paul Two Persons owns a resort lodge that sits on 1,400 acres of land, close by the reservation where he was born. But beyond the idyllic location, all is not well. Several months earlier, Paul's young son, Bobby, had died in a hunting accident; his marriage is shaky; and he's on the verge of losing the lodge thanks to a bad loan to his friend, Al. People have stopped talking to him because "getting too close meant trouble. Tchibai, the old ones called it, or walking shadow." Adding to his woes, Al dies in an apparent suicide. Paul quickly realizes that his troubles are not just fate: they are being deliberately orchestrated, and someone is pulling his strings.
Don't Think Twice is a remarkable literary thriller that eloquently portrays the torment of one man as he battles with various demons. The book leaves us breathless--and needing more of Johnson's magic. --Naomi Gesinger
