Lamb Bright SaviorseBook - 2010
OC Robert VivianOCOs prose is lyrical and harrowingOCoharrowing in the Biblical sense, OCO Sven Birkerts said of The Mover of Bones, the first book in VivianOCOs Tall Grass Trilogy. That same lyrical power carries this new volume to a place of hard-won hope and redemption at once both spiritual and earthly. Lamb Bright Saviors begins as an apocalyptically inclined itinerant preacher staggers across the Nebraska prairie. With his young assistant, Mady, in tow hauling a wagon stacked with bibles, itOCOs not long before the preacher finds heOCOs come to the final fulfillment of his self-proclaimed lifeOCOs work: to die in front of a group of strangers. Odd as his own end-of-days might be, the lives and struggles of the strangers attending this deathbed scene are even odder. As the dying preacher unleashes a barrage of hallucinatory ramblings and rantings in the hope of imparting wisdom, each ragtag member of this unlikely congregation must reckon with his or her own dark past. And, through it all, the irrepressible Mady lends the preacherOCOs strange performance a surprising and unforgettable dignity and humor."
