Irish teen John Devine is stuck with the nickname “John the Revelator” by his chain-smoking, Bible-quoting single mother, Lily. Narrator Gerald Doyle reproduces the languid and leisurely tone of the story as John matures, but he quickens his pace when the eccentric Jamey Corboy moves to town. The friendship opens John’s mind to a world of mischief and discovery. Doyle uses a lilting Irish accent that lulls the listener into quiet enjoyment until cold reality forces young John into a moral quandary. Celebrated by critics as a new member of the club of great novels that portray young friendships—such as A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY and A SEPARATE PEACE—this novel spotlights a great storyteller and a talented narrator.
