A magnet for trouble. A dubious destiny. His quest for true love could succeed, if only his moral compass didn't point South.
The American West, 1850. Former French dandy Didier Rain's weakness for saloon girls, money, and whiskey keep derailing his plan to join the pantheon of epic poets. So, when he's approached by holy men claiming he's part of a prophecy, he agrees to transport an infant bride for a soul-selling sum of $30,000. But to fulfill his foretold role, he'll have to succeed at two tasks at which he's always failed: keeping the cork in the bottle and his pants buttoned.
Unable to resist lustful impulses and outrageously depraved detours, Rain wreaks havoc through his augured misfortunes. Riding the treacherous pioneer landscape, his non-existent survival instincts send him down a trail littered with his own sin and probable doom.
Will Rain's questionable care deliver the girl to her groom unsullied by his unsavory pursuits?
Delivering Virtue, A Dark Comedy Adventure of the West is the first book in the sublimely twisted historical magical realism series, The Epic of Didier Rain. If you like absurdist fiction, witty wordplay, and sordid humor, then you'll love Brian Kindall's quirky foray into a reimagined American Frontier.
