My Cold War is the story of John Delano - history professor, author, and brilliant fraud. At a small New England college he lectures on what others call 'History McNuggets' - gimmicky glimpses of the 'surfaces' of our collective past. But as he struggles to write a major book on the Cold War, his life begins to fall apart. Revisiting the streets of 1960s suburbia, the JFK assassination, the Summer of Love, and other iconic moments, Delano begins to confront the personal history that he has kept buried for years. A trip into the heartland to reconnect with his estranged brother changes everything for Delano and forms the powerful, surprising climax of this extraordinary first novel.
