“What if you could live life over again? And again? And again?” Jeff Winston, the hero of this compulsively readable novel, dies in the very first sentence...and wakes up in his 18-year-old body in his college dorm room, his memories of his just-ended life completely intact. Jeff ends up caught in an endlessly repeating life loop, never quite living the same life twice, and along the way, he realizes that he is not the only one replaying. A GREAT read!

This book is a rollicking and insightful blend of original interviews, commentary, advice, gossip, anecdotes, analyses, history, and asides with nearly thirty graduates and teachers at the now legendary Iowa Writers' Workshop between 1974 and 1978. Among the talents that emerged in those years were the younger versions of writers who became John Irving, Jane Smiley, T. C. Boyle, Michelle Huneven, Allan Gurganus, Sandra Cisneros, Jayne Anne Phillips, Jennie Fields, Joy Harjo, Joe Haldeman, and many others. It is chock full of insights and a treasure trove of inspiration for all writers, readers, history lovers, and anyone who ever "wanted to be a writer."
