THE PROPHETS marks the arrival of a vital and original literary voice. Robert Jones Jr.’s stunning and highly-anticipated debut novel is a masterful tale of the union between two enslaved men on a Deep South plantation, the refuge they find in each other, and a betrayal that threatens their existence. Written with a spellbinding mix of lyricism, rawness, and authenticity reminiscent of Toni Morrison, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and James Baldwin, THE PROPHETS addresses issues of race, class, privilege, and sexuality with an urgent and unflinching eye toward our contemporary times, proving that Jones is a writer who not only is part of the current conversation, but helping to lead it.
