Publisher Description

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, she assumes, secure. When she finds proof of a high-level cover-up on her boss's desk, she impulsively takes it, an act that turns her world, and her worldview, upside down. Propelled by a desire to do good -- and also by a newfound taste for excitement -- Maggie starts to see injustice everywhere. Soon her bottom drawer is filled with what she calls "evidence," her small town has turned against her, and she must decide how far she will go for the truth.

For Penn Sinclair -- Army Captain, Ivy League graduate, and reluctant heir to his family's fortune -- a hasty decision has disastrous results. Home from Iraq and eager to atone, he reunites with three survivors to expose the truth about the war. They launch a website that soon has people talking, but the more they expose, the cloudier their mission becomes.

Now and Again is a blazingly original novel about the interconnectedness of lives, the limits of knowledge, and the consequences of doing the right thing.

“In this stunning novel from Rogan, seemingly unrelated story threads are ingeniously woven into an explosive whole…Rogan skillfully portrays characters who examine their consciences, working toward a more responsible way of living in the world. Power struggles ensue, families suffer, friendships are tested, and wells of strength are tapped, yet the author offers no pat answers to life’s difficult questions.”

— Library Journal 

Quotes

  • “Rogan’s debut novel, The Lifeboat, was a suspenseful, psychological survival story, and her new novel is just as harrowing, and even more complex.”

    — Huffington 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.”

    — Christian Science Monitor
  • “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
  • “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
  • “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 our last best hope.”

    — Patrick Flanery, author of Fallen Land
  • 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.

    — Aida Edemariam, The Guardian (US Edition)
  • A sprawling contemporary story.

    — Book Page, Book Page
