John Casey pens a passionate and charming love story about the ups and downs of a couple living together in rural Iowa.

An American Romance follows the relationship of Anya, the director of a theater commune, and Mac, a Canadian engineer who builds sets for the theater, as they embark on their personal journeys of fulfillment while by each other’s side.

Against the backdrop of rural Iowa, Anya and Mac share a passionate and tumultuous relationship that lends itself to the anything-but-standard culture of American life in seventies.

“This is a novel of Proustian detail, rich and sensuous; in fact, in the depth of affection felt for his characters, John Casey has achieved a contemporary American novel that closely resembles Remembrance of Things Past.” — John Irving
