From the actor, director, and writer Ethan Hawke: a piercing novel of love, marriage, and renewal.Jimmy is AWOL from the army, but—with characteristic fierceness and terror—he’s about to embark on the biggest commitment of his life. Christy is pregnant with Jimmy’s child, and she’s determined to head home, with or without Jimmy, to face up to her past and prepare for the future. Somehow, barreling across America from Albany to New Orleans to Ohio and Texas in a souped-up Chevy Nova, Christy and Jimmy are transformed from passionate but conflicted lovers into a young family on a magnificent journey.Ash Wednesday is a novel of blazing emotion and remarkable grace, a tale that captures the intensity—the excitement, fear, and joy—of being on the threshold of the mysterious country of marriage and parenthood. Powerful, assured, large of heart, and punctuated by moments of tremendous humor, it represents, for Hawke the novelist, a major leap forward.

3.0 Ash Wednesday
saw this book at a used bookstore, which reminded me that I had read it some time ago (2003?) finding it merely competent; one could finish the book and was impressed that Ethan Hawke could write a novel, but certainly nothing one has to chase down. competent rather than a superb piece of art
