The Harvest Is Past
The Harvest Is Past is a powerful story of a generation caught on the cusp of a liberal post-Vietnam era and the unconditional conservatism of the coming Reagan years. A group of lifelong friends experience pain, love and disappointment as they navigate the excesses of a changing American landscape and their own physical and emotional wounds. The story is told through the eyes of Emmett Morley, and unfolds during the pivotal year of 1980 amid the backdrop of a deadly heat wave and a city electrified by the hopes of winning its first World Series.
