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.”
