About the book
Eugene “Geno” Miles is living out his final days in a nursing home and struggling to connect with his nursing assistant, Angel, who is understandably skeptical of Geno’s insistence on having lived not just one life but many—where he found true love only to lose it and spent the next thousand years trying to recapture it.
Heartwarming and spun with just the right amount of magical realism, Again and Again showcases Evison’s knack for turning everyday circumstances on their head and finding unsung, forgotten storytellers in our own communities. This is an escapist read that will keep readers thinking about Geno long after turning the final page.
“A beguiling and big-hearted literary page-turner, Again and Again brims with narrative brio while also partaking in a poignant, timeless wisdom. Eugene’s voice enchanted me from the first page and wove its way into the fibers of my being, even and especially when I felt him start to tug at the rug under my feet.” —Antoine Wilson, author of Mouth to Mouth and Panorama City
