Overview

Winner of the 2010 London Book Festival Award for General Fiction.

"Really clicking, Second Acts, is a picaresque, sci-fi/western, such as Verne or Welles might have penned it, but with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Tim W. Brown's tale of a husband's search for his fugitive wife takes readers on a whirlwind tour of America, circa 1830. In subverting history Brown's tale celebrates it, with a scholar's eye for authentic details and at a pacing so swift the pages give off a nice breeze."
- Peter Selgin
