Kirkus Reviews Recommends THE SOUL CITY SALVATION

Kirkus Reviews recommends Jonathan LaPoma’s new darkly comic, psychologically epic novel, The Soul City Salvation:

“Jay is revealed to be an intriguing soul to follow, and LaPoma seamlessly depicts aspects of Jay’s mental illness as well as his attempts to get successfully published. Along the way, the author effectively plays with the theme of control—specifically, Jay’s lack of it, in both his classrooms and in his personal life . . . A good character study of an educator yearning for more will be satisfied . . . A . . . highly readable tale of a struggling but well-meaning schoolteacher.”

Almendro Arts will publish the novel on March 24, 2020.
