HANNIBAL HOOKER: His Death and Adventures

Picaresque adventures, both physical and intellectual, of an Indiana Quaker who studies at a Boston Theological Seminary. His professional career, first in the ministry, then -- after a marriage, escape to Haiti; involvement in revolutionary activities, and emergence as a journalist, somewhat unorthodox in his loyalties and activities. The book is largely discussions --the Church, love, life, ways of living -- shockers for the orthodox, humor for those who like their theology barbed. But it is a bit inclined to be tedious and talky-talky. Hannibal, presumably, is a sort of modern Quixote. Can't see a general sale -- though it might get a snob appeal market on its oddities.
