By Kevin Brennan
In this â€œcoming-of-old-ageâ€ tale, Jack Peckham finds himself on a journey into his distant past, helped along the way by Joe Easterday, a young man with Down syndrome, and Ida Pevely, a middle-aged waitress with her own mountain of regrets. Jack has a hundred grand in cash that he canâ€™t explain, since he canâ€™t remember yesterday much less forty years ago. Setting out from Northern California for â€œpoints east,â€ he gets lost, carjacked, abandoned, and arrested, but heâ€™s always homing in on the one object of his inner drive â€” home. With humor and plenty of unexpected turns, Kevin Brennanâ€™s second novel is a lyrical and poignant story of memory and identity, of how it is the whole of experience â€” pain and regret along with love and pleasure â€” that gives life its fullness. We all tow our histories behind us as we make our way down Yesterday Road.
