PEN/Faulkner Award for fiction (nominee)
Percy's stirring sequel to The Last Gentleman: the offbeat story of how a man's midlife crisis finally leads him to happiness

Now in his late forties, Will Barrett lives a life other men only dream of. Wealthy from a successful career on Wall Street and from the inheritance of his deceased wife's estate, Will is universally admired at the club where he spends his days golfing in the North Carolina sun. But everything begins to unravel when, without warning, Will's golf shots begin landing in the rough, and he is struck with bouts of losing his balance and falling over. Just when Will appears doomed to share the fate of his father - whose suicide has haunted him his whole life - a mental hospital escapee named Allison might prove to be the only one who can save him.
 
Original and profound, The Second Coming is a moving love story of two damaged souls who find peace with each other.
