Michael D. O’Brien’s new book: The Fool of New York City

Speaking of Michael D. O’Brien, I just finished reading his newest offering…
The Fool of New York City
US HERE – UK HERE
This could be a good Christmas gift.

No, you tender lib snowflakes out there.  It’s not about Donald Trump.
It is quite touching.  I don’t like spoilers, so I won’t say much about it.  What I can say is that it is about identity and rediscovery.  There is a wounded soul and an unlikely redemptive figure.  It has all the usual poetry and mystic touches that O’Brien’s books are know for.
Another great thing about this new book: It’s only 280 pages long!
