A Very Minor Prophet

A Very Minor Prophet: A Novel - James Bernard Frost Original, irreverent, quirky, sometimes sweet, possibly blasphemous, and often funny, this novel took me by surprise with its friendly voice and intriguing, sympathetic, charmingly flawed characters. Portland comes alive in all its glorious weirdness, as seen from the point of view of a motley band of cyclists, freaks, and zinesters. The style reminded me of a mash-up of Tom Robbins and Hunter S Thompson with a little Corwin Ericson thrown in, but Frost has a vision and voice all his own.
