Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Terrifically rich in story, full of unforgettable characters, July, July is the definitive novel of the baby boom generation, the men and women whose lives were molded and defined by the 1960s.<P>At the thirtieth reunion of Minnesota's Darton Hall College class of 1969, a group of old friends reassemble for a July weekend of dancing, drinking, flirting, reminiscing, regretting. The three decades since their graduation have seen marriage and divorce, children and careers, dreams deferred and disappointed. Many memories, many ghosts. Two best friends toast their ex-husbands with vodka and set out for a good time. A damaged war veteran opens his soul to a Republican trophy wife recovering from a radical mastectomy. An overweight mop manufacturer with a large but failing heart reignites his passion for a hyperkinetic housewife. A draft dodger back from Canada finds surprising sympathy in a minister who has scandalously lost her job. Each of their lives is a wonderfully compelling tale of passion, hope, self-delusion, and yearning. Together they provide a portrait of a generation launched into adulthood at the moment when this country, too, lost its innocence.
