Debut novel

Hughes Keenan’s debut novel, The Harvest Is Past, is a powerful story of a generation caught on the cusp of a liberal post-Vietnam era and the unconditional conservatism of the coming Reagan years. A group of lifelong friends experience pain, love and disappointment as they navigate the excesses of a changing American landscape and their own physical and emotional wounds. The story is told through the eyes of Emmett Morley, and unfolds during the pivotal year of 1980 amid the backdrop of a deadly heat wave and a city electrified by the hopes of winning its first World Series.

The Harvest Is Past is available at Amazon in book form for $16.99, and will be available late January on Kindle and other e-book formats for $5.99
