The nether side of passion is madness. Nathan Price is a college professor with crippling impairments, seeking escape from his prison of necessity. One day, in a package of seventeenth-century documents from Salem Village, he stumbles across a letter by his best friend, Jamie, who had disappeared six months before. The document is dated 1692--the height of the Witch Trials. The only potential lead: a single mention of Carthage, a tiny town in the Wisconsin northern highland. The mystery catapults Nathan from Chicago to the Wisconsin wilderness. There, he meets Alanna, heir to an astonishing Mittel-European legacy of power and sacrifice. In her, and in the gentle townsfolk of Carthage, Nathan finds the refuge for which he has long yearned. But Simon, the town elder, is driven by demons of his own, and may well be entangled in Jamie's disappearance and that of several Carthaginians. As darkness stretches toward Alanna, Nathan may have no choice but to risk it all... Moving from the grimness of Chicago's South Side to the Wisconsin hinterlands to seventeenth-century Salem, this is a story of love, of sacrifice, of terrible passions--and of two wounded souls quietly reaching for the deep peace of sanctuary.… (més)

Review: Autumn In Carthage by Christopher Zenos. 11/22/2017

The story starts off slow but it didn’t take long to capture my interest. I thought it was well written, I enjoyed the characters once I figure out who was who and the story was entertaining. The death of some characters throughout the book, especially the ones you really liked was a bummer but the story must go on…There was mysterious time travel within the story and how mental illness can cast over lives, the redemptive power of love, and all the difficulties of choice.

The main character Nathan Price is a college professor looking forward to a year’s uninterrupted sabbatical, doing historical research when he received some data he requested from a museum in Salem, Massachusetts. While going over the papers he came across a reference concerning Jamie, his friend who has been missing for months. This new information made him decide to go to Carthage, Wisconsin to work on his book and look into the disappearance of his friend.

Carthage was a small quiet community and when Nathan got there he checked into the picturesque Inn the town offered. He was first welcomed by Gerry the innkeeper, chef, and bar tender. At some point during his meal Nathan mentioned to Gerry and Alanna who was one of the locals, the reason he choose Carthage for a visit. Right off Nathan felt a change in the welcoming atmosphere and as the story unfolds Nathan and the reader will gradually find out why… There are still more variety of personalities to be introduced, some profanity throughout, and a couple of explicit sex scenes to overcome but all and all the second half of the book was better….

Many readers mentioned something Zenos wrote that memorized them as it did me.

“Too much unvoiced misery, too many people lost and alone ~in marriages, relationships, nestled within their families ~well trained through threat of social rejection to keep pain carefully hidden.” ( )

Nathan Price is about to go on sabbatical from the University of Chicago when he receives a parcel of 17th century documents among which, impossibly, is a letter in the handwriting of his best friend, Jamie McKinnon, who had disappeared six months before. Equally impossibly the letter mentions the town of Carthage, Wisconsin, which didn't exist in the 17th century. Nathan sets out for Carthage to investigate. It's a town with secrets, but then again Nathan has secrets of his own.

Good plot and characters, but rather flat descriptions. The technobabble for the time travel left me a bit 'meh', but as the plot progressed the excitement really picked up and carried me along. ( )

Seems I'm reading a lot from the Twilight Zone lately. Autumn in Carthage follows a professor on sabbatical from the University of Chicago to small town Wisconsin, Carthage, to be specific. A grad student's research has turned up a letter from 17th Century Salem, Massachusetts, written in the extremely familiar handwriting of the professor's lost best friend. In the letter, the friend mentions Carthage, Wisconsin, a place unknown, of course, to the people of Salem at the time of the witch hunts. Once in Carthage, our hero becomes entwined in the town's civic life, and learns more than he bargained for, including the well-hidden secret the townsfolk keep from the rest of the world. Full of likeable people, even in their damaged state, the novel is quite a ride and the author, writing out of his own mental illness, engages the reader, encouraging us to suspend disbelief and accept that there may well be more out there than we can imagine. Well worth the time spent reading it, in my opinion. ( )

I love, love, love this book. Every part is it is great, but what made it outstanding for me was the honest way Zenos portrayed mental illness. He did a beautiful job of showing the "outsider-ness" that is implicit to mental illness. Read the rest of my review on my blog here: http://madnessandfolly.net/tag/autumn-in-carthage/ ( )

I bring you with reverent hands
The books of my numberless dreams;
White woman that passion has worn
As the tide wears the dove-gray sands,
And with heart more old than the horn
That is brimmed from the pale fire of time:
White woman with numberless dreams
I bring you my passionate rhyme.
- WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS,
A Poet To His Beloved
