A Folk Music Novel By Scott Alarik

“We come of age more than once"

There has never been a novel like this, a love story set in

the subterranean world of modern folk music.

Advance Praise for Revival:

“A fascinating introduction to folk music and a joyous

celebration of folk musicians and their world… succinctly

examines people reexamining themselves and finding the

courage to move forward.” –– Booklist

“Characters so believable that you want to go hear them in

concert.” — Catie Curtis, songwriter

“ A terrific, cathartic, hard-to-put-down read.”
