Originally from Michigan, Arthur attended Harvard but when he could no longer afford it, begged for a scholarship. His professors refused to help him because of his reactionary political views.
He left Harvard and moved to Elmira, New York and joined a group of like-minded anti-unionists who persuaded him to drive and leave a car bomb behind a union building in Detroit. The bomb exploded and killed a union leader, so Arthur fled to Canada as a fugitive. Now, years later, two men from Detroit arrived to confront Arthur about his crime.
Jepps and Crosley seemed not to have a real plan, but Arthur feared his concealment had come to an end. Arthur then drove Dell in the blizzard to the shack on his property and murdered Jepps and Crosley while Dell waited in the car.
Although not in the shack when Arthur shot them, Dell saw the crime but could not hear it, and the soundless pantomime-like violence of the crime terrified him.
Dell helped Charley and another man bury the bodies in the fields where the Americans came to shoot geese, and ironically noted that if Jepps and Crosley had lived, they would be hunting on that same spot the next day. Florence then arranged for Dell to take a bus to Winnipeg to live with her son Roland. In Winnipeg, he attended high school, graduated, went to college, became a naturalized Canadian citizen, married and moved to Windsor where he now teaches English at a high school.
After moving to Winnipeg, he eventually learned that his mother had committed suicide while in prison and that his sister Berner is now dying of cancer. He visits her in the Twin Cities in Minnesota. She has lived an unsettled life, but their bittersweet reunion leaves Dell with a small sense of resolution.
Berner dies and the whereabouts or outcome of Bev, Arthur, Charley and the others remain unknown to him. Dell tells no one, except his wife Clare, about the murders of the two Americans, and believes that on some strange cosmic level that he will have to pay for his involvement in the crime of Arthur Remlinger.

I think of them as changeable, provisional, unpredictable, decidedly unwhole. I can change them at will, and do. But this is the development of character, in my view; not the setting out of something fixed, which is how I thought of them when I was beginning.
Maybe this view deviates from the conventional view of character.
Of course not, right? And based on them we can purport to have characters—invent or allege character, in a sense.
And sometimes histories predict what people will do. Though often not.
But character is just one of those human pseudoessences that is often used detrimentally. Certainly a lot of modern fiction derives its drama from the conflict between assumed character and some specific action that deviates from it.
I knew you were going to be here, and I knew we would have dinner.
But what? And she says I have her say , But nothing. Based on how the scene felt I completely switched the dynamics. What happens next is that he—not she—tries his best to get out of their relationship as quickly and smoothly as possible. Which, for a couple of hundred pages, he does.
But have you ever had to call somebody on the phone, somebody you wanted to get rid of, only you end up doing nothing but getting yourself in more deeply? But then we may not do it that way the next time.
Then I think to myself, Well, start.
