Description

A "perceptive, affectionate, and often very funny" novel about old college friends at a thirty-year reunion, by the author of The Things They Carried (Boston Herald). From a National Book Award winner who's been called "the best American writer of his generation" (San Francisco Examiner), July, July tells the story of ten old friends who attended Darton Hall College together back in 1969, and now reunite for a summer weekend of dancing, drinking, flirting, reminiscing—and regretting. The three decades since graduation have brought marriage and divorce, children and careers, hopes deferred and replaced. This witty, heart-rending novel about men and women who came into adulthood at a moment when American ideals and innocence began to fade, a New York Times Notable Book, is "deeply satisfying" (O, the Oprah Magazine) and "almost impossible to put down" (Austin American-Statesman). "A symphony of American life." —All Things Considered, NPR

        July 1, 2002

        After a comedic hiatus with 1998's Tomcat in Love, O'Brien expands on themes he explored in some of his best-known earlier novels: memory, hope, love, war. It's July 2000 and members of the Darton Hall College class of 1969 are gathered, one year behind schedule, for their 30th reunion. Focusing on sharply drawn characters and life's pivotal moments rather than on a strong linear plot, O'Brien follows the ensemble cast (which includes a Vietnam vet, a draft dodger, a minister, a bigamous housewife and a manufacturer of mops) for whom "the world had whittled itself down to now or never," as they drink, flirt and reminisce. Interspersed are tales of other Julys, when each character experienced something that changed him or her forever. Jump-cutting across decades, O'Brien reveals past loves and old betrayals that still haunt: Dorothy failed to follow Billy to Canada; Spook hammered out a "double marriage"; Ellie saw her lover drown; Paulette, in a moment of desperation, disgraced herself and ruined her career. Comedy and pathos define the reunion days, while the histories often devastate. Because they are
        such dramatic moments—a tryst that ends tragically, a near-death experience on the bank of a foreign river, the aftermath of a radical mastectomy—some of them feel contrived, almost hyperbolic. Still, this is a poignant and powerful page-turner, and a testament to a generation. National advertising; national author tour. (Oct. 1)Forecast:O'Brien is poised to secure a sizable readership in his age bracket, and the excerpts in the
        New Yorker and
        Esquire won't hurt either, but O'Brien's younger fans—all those who discovered
        The Things They Carried when it was assigned to them in class—might be less intrigued by this "definitive novel" of the baby boom cohort.
