Description
"A modern-day classic... equally audacious and brilliant."&;Ron Charles, Washington PostAll is not boding well for Father Julius. . . A street preacher decked out in denim robes and running shoes, Julius is a source of inspiration for a community that knows nothing of his scandalous origins.  But when a nearby mental hospital releases its patients to run amok in his neighborhood, his trusted if bedraggled flock turns expectantly to Julius to find out what&;s going on. Amid the descending chaos, Julius encounters a hospital escapee who babbles prophecies of doom, and the growing palpable sense of impending danger intensifies. . . as does the feeling that everyone may be relying on a street preacher just a little too much.  Still, Julius decides he must confront the forces that threaten his congregation&;including the peculiar followers of a religious cult, the mysterious men and women dressed all in red seen fleetingly amid the bedlam, and an enigmatic smoking figure who seems to know what&;s going to happen just before it does.  In the end, The Revisionaries is a wildly imaginative, masterfully rendered, and suspenseful tale that conjures the bold outlandishness stylishness of Thomas Pynchon, Margaret Atwood, and Alan Moore&;while being unlike anything that&;s come before.

display_descriptionA street preacher decked out in denim robes and running shoes, Julius is a source of inspiration for a community that knows nothing of his scandalous origins. But when a nearby mental hospital releases its patients to run amok in his neighborhood, his trusted if bedraggled flock turns expectantly to Julius to find out what's going on. Amid the descending chaos, Julius encounters a hospital escapee who babbles prophecies of doom, and the growing palpable sense of impending danger intensifies ... as does the feeling that everyone may be relying on a street preacher just a little too much. Still, Julius decides he must confront the forces that threaten his congregation--including the peculiar followers of a religious cult, the mysterious men and women dressed all in red seen fleetingly amid the bedlam, and an enigmatic smoking figure who seems to know what's going to happen just before it does. "A postmodern epic of a modern day street preacher who risks everything to help a prophet flee a figure who may be God. THE REVISIONARIES is a maximalist work of fiction, where the social novel meets comic book antics. At its heart is the leader of a ragtag parish located in a gangland corner of a city that may or may not be Knoxville, TN; a sadistic scion to a Blue Ridge family dynasty, a history professor escaped from a nearby mental asylum, and a superhuman that blinks in and out of existence. The entanglement of their lives will literally collide heaven and earth in ways only the brilliant A. R. Moxon could envision"--
