Reviews for Bring the Jubilee (SF Masterworks #42)

Time, moving backwards, and other notional reversals and transpositions attend the picaresque experiences of Hodge Backmaker and the aftermath of a Civil War in which the South was victorious. In the 1930's, Hodge comes to New York where he joins the Grand Army and is troubled by hate mongering. Some years later he meets Barbara Haggerswells and joins her father's intellectual retreat where he does research on the Civil War and marries Catty. A trip to Gettysburg finds Barbara there- who gives him the timepiece which takes him back to the fateful battle and changes his perspective. Yours, however, may be quite confused by the close.
