About this product
- DescriptionIs The Book of Mormon a Great American Novel? Avi Steinberg thinks so. In this quirky travelogue part fan nfiction, 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.
