The Temptations of St. Frank (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 11, 2009 07:38AM
Description: Imagine Catch-22’s Captain Yossarian in high school. Imagine Prep written by a guy. Imagine the heroes of Superbad as seniors at St. Anselm’s Preparatory School for Boys. Imagine the narrator of Philip Roth’s Goodbye, Columbus as a Catholic. Imagine J.P. Donleavy’s The Beastly Beatitudes of Balthazar B. set in New Jersey in 1970. Seventeen-year-old Frank Grimaldi wants one thing more than anything else—to have sex before he graduates. Too bad his crazy teachers, insane parents, the Catholic Church, and the Mafia are all standing in the way. THE TEMPTATIONS OF ST. FRANK… a Catholic school coming-of-age novel.
