Poor Richard's Lament

  • A Most Timely Tale

    Tom Fitzgerald

    The most ambitious project Hobblebush has ever undertaken, Poor Richard's Lament is "not only a grand and gorgeous novel, it is also, as Fitzgerald's Franklin might put it, a most timely one." So says Michael Zuckerman in his equally timely Foreword. We are more than a little excited to be able to present this "tour de force" to the world.

    "A re-imagining of Benjamin Franklin you will not soon forget..." says Walter Isaacson, author of Benjamin Franklin: An American Life, and Steve Jobs. But this is also more than a re-imagining of Franklin. It is a re-imagining of America itself. Where did the cultural legacy of Ben Franklin go wrong? We come to understand this, even as Franklin himself comes to self-realization in this book, during his 'celestial trial' and during his dramatic reintroduction into 21st century America. At the end, a better country emerges.
