Meet John Trow

Meet John Trow Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Steven Armour, a disaffected man in his forties, is at a crossroads: his marriage has fizzled, his career is at a standstill, and he is obsessed by the man he might have become if only he had married the woman who still haunts him. But life takes an unexpected turn for Steven when, on a whim, he joins a local group of Civil War re-enactors. Assigned to immerse himself in the character of Private John Trow, Steven soon finds himself completely identifying with Trow's life and consumed by his passion for a fellow re-enactor, Polly Kellogg. Deft and often absurdly comical, Meet John Trow is the haunting tale of a man who risks losing his future to satisfy the temptations of the past.

Synopsis:

Steven Armour, fighting off a midlife crisis, joins a group of Civil War reenactors, and his life suddenly turns around. A haunting narrative of a man caught between his own life and a life he might have lived, "Meet John Trow" will take its place as a classic novel of history.
