Revival is a novel that celebrates America's renewed passion for folk music and singer-songwriters. Charismatic songwriter Nathan Warren lost his chance at stardom years ago. Kit Palmer is young, beautiful, and explosively gifted, but can she keep from falling apart on stage? They travel the Boston folk scene as lovers and artists, through basement coffeehouses and funky jams, rowdy open mikes and grand concert halls, seeking stardom for one and redemption for the other.
