9780375718854: Ash Wednesday

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.

From the Publisher:

Ash Wednesday is a novel of blazing emotion and remarkable grace, a tale that captures what it feels like to be on the verge of marriage and parenthood, at the threshold of life changes that are at once painful and wondrous.

From the Back Cover:

“Hawke demonstrates a maturity of style and vision [and] a compelling sense of detail.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Hawke’s witty narrative . . . presents us with a pair of lively and surprisingly earnest pilgrims.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Succeeds because of a kind of rolling exuberance of style that carries one along a narrative freeway with no exits. Once you’re on, you’re on.” —Larry McMurtry

“[Hawke] displays a novelist’s innate gifts. He has a sharp eye, a fluid storytelling voice and the imagination to create complicated individuals.” —The New York Times

“Ethan Hawke is a gifted novelist. This, his second novel, follows the intense
romance and marriage of two smart, feeling, articulate young lovers.” –The Boston Globe

“Hawke not only does the basics well, with deft physical descriptions and sharp dialogue, but has an eye for weird, surrealistic situations with a kernel of poetic seriousness. . . . A marvelous novel.” –London Daily Telegraph

“Employing his ear for dialogue as a rudder and his insight into character as a turbo, Ethan Hawke skillfully navigates the roiling waters of the twentysomething heart.” –Tom Robbins

“An ambitious road novel.” –Newsday

“Hawke, at times, achieves pure poetry.” –Time Out New York

“Unfolds pretty much the way a book should, tracing a herky-jerk romance from Albany, New York, to New Orleans and Texas in a bizarrely mature narrative–straight, unapologetic, even funny.” –Esquire

“A fast-paced story laced with thoughtful meditations on such thorny issues as spirituality, self-acceptance, and what makes love last.” –Austin American Statesman

“[Hawke’s] got a focused, observant eye for realism and an attuned ear for language. . . . [He] is growing as an author, transforming himself into a novelist of interest.” –The Toronto Globe

“Passionate, spiritual, and ambitious.” –Glamour

“Hawke has become a novelist. . . . Ash Wednesday is the work of a real writer.” –The Boston Phoenix

“A provocative, sensual meditation on faith and marriage–think Denis Johnson by way of Sam Shepard.” –Pages
