9780099449676: Meet John Trow

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.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Steven Armour is a man at a crossroad: his rise up the career ladder has slowed to a crawl, and his family is slipping out of control. But life takes a dramatic turn for Steven when, on a whim, he joins a local group of Civil War re-enactors. Assigned to immerse himself in the life of Private John Trow, Steven soon finds that the complex drills of the Union army seem to come to him naturally and his growing infatuation with Polly Kellogg, the wife of the regiment s captain, fires a passion that had cooled with his own wife. While the world around him races faster and faster toward the millennium, Steven turns to the simple consolations of nineteenth-century life. But so thoroughly does Steven embrace the life of John Trow that even Steven begins to wonder if he is just playing a part, or whether the unquiet spirit of John Trow is taking him over. As Steven s identity slips through his fingers, he must ask himself what - and who - he is willing to sacrifice to become the man he believes he should have been. Meet John Trow is a moving love story and a haunting, darkly comic exploration of the links between past and present. Bookseller Inventory # AB99780099449676
