Description:

"In Jeremiah, Ohio, poet Adam Sol reinvents the Biblical prophet and doomsayer Jeremiah for the present day, and sends him on an apocalyptic road trip through the rural United States with an everyman companion, Bruce. The mismatched pair is thrown together by accident but come to depend upon each other as they travel in early September through a blighted American landscape toward the promised city of New York. As Jeremiah delivers ever more devastating critiques and warnings to whomever will listen to his ravings, Bruce protects the prophet from harm and discovers his own capacity for compassion."--BOOK JACKET.
