An American Song: Nazareth Road is a work of literary fiction focused on politics, history and the nature of having worked in real war and active combat. Penned by author Jeffy C. Edie, the novel focuses on not just the central character of Walter McGinn, but a representation of the whole of working-class America as they break down the class divide in the pursuit of happiness. Cycling through different generations of soldiers and families of faith in the Bible Belt, the nature of where a person is born seems to predict a harrowing future until the political turmoil of the 1970s shakes things into perspective.
The narrative of Jeffy C. Edie’s work operates more like a memoir than a work of fiction, utilizing the device of a central character to convey real political issues from the recent past of the United States, as well as pertinent issues of heritage and struggle which prevail today. Edie’s prose is frank and discussion based, allowing us into Walter’s situation as a young man displaced by the rocky society around him, yet also trapped by the circumstances of his birth. This presents a challenging narrative to read, but one which sends an important message about the under-representation of Middle America, the fortitude and faith that families there still possess to this day. Overall, An American Song: Nazareth Road is a piece of fiction to be taken seriously as a strong and illuminating allegory for the real struggles that have, and continue to take place depending on the situation you’re born into.”
