9780349005782: Now and Again

A provocative novel about the fallout from a search for truth by the author of the national bestseller The Lifeboat. For Maggie Rayburn--wife, mother, and secretary at a munitions plant--life is pleasant, predictable, and secure. When she finds proof of a high-level cover-up on her boss' desk, she impulsively takes it, turning her world upside down. Propelled by a desire to do good--and a newfound taste for excitement--Maggie starts to see injustice everywhere. Soon, her bottom drawer is filled with evidence, her town has turned against her, and she must decide how far she will go for the truth. Meanwhile, in Iraq, Captain Penn Sinclair's hasty orders have disastrous results. In an attempt at atonement, he reunites with three survivors to expose the truth about the war. Now and Again examines the interconnectedness of lives, the limits of knowledge, and the consequences of doing the right thing.

She lives in Westport, Connecticut.

Review:

PRAISE FOR NOW AND AGAIN:

"With consummate command of narrative, Charlotte Rogan nimbly brings together whistleblowers and soldiers in a damning--and page-turning--critique of America's military-industrial complex and its massive amount of collateral damage. It's the novel we deserve for the war we didn't."
Teddy Wayne, author of The Love Song of Jonny Valentine and Kapitoil

"Now and Again is breathtaking in its scope and insight. With wit, humanity, and extraordinary clarity of vision, Rogan has found the uniting thread that weaves together contemporary American life. This is America from the ground up, full of ordinary people trying to make sense of their lives, driven by that brand of frontier idealism that might yet be out last best hope."
Patrick Flanery, author of Absolution and Fallen Land

"Sprawling and vibrant."
Matt Gallagher, The Washington Post


"An absorbing search for truth...no less exciting than her first...extremely topical...Rogan writes successfully, and forcefully, about experiences that are foreign until they feel familiar."
Olivia Lowenberg, The Christian Science Monitor


"Rogan's storytelling is multi-layered and many-faceted."
Carol Memmott, The Chicago Tribune


"This sophomore novel from Rogan, who wrote the award-winning The Lifeboat, once again displays a strong, bright voice and an uncompromising command of storytelling."
DuJour Magazine


"Has the same lasting power [as her debut, The Lifeboat]."
Katherine A. Powers, Barnes & Noble Review


"Rogan's second novel...delineates the journey from outrage to action to doubt, contrasting mundane routines with the philosophical dilemmas of ordinary people."
Publishers Weekly


"Rogan has an excellent grip of the necessary satisfactions of plot, and of both structure and character...She confidently and swiftly builds a complex, three-dimensional lattice of allegiance and fact."
Aida Edemariam, The Guardian (US Edition)


"A sprawling contemporary story."
