Summary
"At the thirtieth reunion of Minnesota's Darton Hall College class of 1969, ten old friends join their classmates for a July weekend of dancing, drinking, flirting, reminiscing, regretting. The three decades since their graduation have seen marriage and divorce, children and careers, hopes deferred and abandoned. July, July tells the heart-rending and often hilarious story of a group of men and women who came into adulthood at a moment when American ideals and innocence began to fade. Their lives will ring familiar to anyone who has dreamed big dreams, suffered disappointment, and still struggled toward a happy ending. Winner of the National Book Award for his novel Going After Cacciato, Tim O'Brien once again strikes at the emotional center of our lives. With humor and a sense of wistful hope, July, July speaks directly to our American character and to our resilience."--
