February’s Rumpus Book Club Pick


February’s Rumpus Book Club selection is A Very Minor Prophet by James Bernard Frost. Warm up with this excerpt from Hawthorne Books, and if you’re not yet on-board, consider joining the Book Club to get an early look at the full novel.

“A Very Minor Prophet is the story of how Barth Flynn, a barista swimming upstream against purposelessness in Portland, Oregon, becomes the faithful scribe of Joseph Patrick Booker. Booker is a dwarf preacher who serves Voodoo donuts, Stumptown coffee, and, while his congregation throws PBR cans at him, rants about George W. Bush during the height of the 2004 presidential election.”

Rumpus Events is a column where we'll list upcoming Rumpus events. We might even run videos and recaps of those events. More from this author →
