$16.95
Is The Book of Mormon a Great American Novel? Avi Steinberg thinks so. In this quirky travelogue--part fan nonfiction, part personal quest--he follows the trail laid out in Joseph Smith's book. From Jerusalem to the ruined Mayan cities of Central America to upstate New York and, finally, to Jackson County, Missouri--the spot Smith identified as the site of the Garden of Eden--Steinberg traces The Book's unexpected path and grapples with Joseph Smith's demons--and his own. Literate and funny, personal and provocative, the genre-bending The Lost Book of Mormon boldly explores our deeply human impulse to write books, and affirms the abiding power of story.
