Douglas Kennedy's riveting new novel bears his trademark genius for writing serious popular fiction.
Hannah Buchan leads an orderly life in a small town in Maine -- a schoolteacher, married to a doctor, with two grown up children. However, her past conceals a dark secret. Thirty years ago she had a brief, dangerous fling with Tobias Judson, a high profile student activist, which she had reconciled to that internal, off-limits attic room marked "Ancient History." But when Tobias suddenly pops up out of nowhere with a book about his radical years, her life goes into free-fall. And before she knows it, Hannah discovers that a long-ago transgression is never really forgotten.
Set amid two wildly contrasting periods of recent American life -- the militant 60s and 70s, and the new-found conservatism of today -- State of the Union is a remarkable portrait of one woman's attempts to find her own way in the shifting political currents of her time. But it is also an intriguing portrait of the complexities of a long marriage, the ongoing guilt of parenthood, the perpetual tension between familial responsibility and personal freedom, and the divisive debate between liberal and conservative values that so engulfs the United States today.
