A clerical error forces Orrin to run for mayor. A journey of self-discovery capped off by a bad batch of moonshine transforms Rabelais into a cult leader. Meanwhile, John wants nothing more than to be left alone, but is caught between the burgeoning movements unwittingly started by his two friends.
Dark, caustic, and wickedly sardonic, St. Anthony's Fire illuminates the absurdities of society in the 21st century. If reading it leaves you feeling frustrated and miserable, with a worse outlook on life and the world around you, then it has done its job well.
