Radio Bookclub: Mad Boy

Denver author Nick Arvin sets his latest book Mad Boy during the war of 1812. The young protagonist is young Henry Phipps who is on a quest to realize his dying mother’s last wish: to be buried at sea, surrounded by her family.

Not an easy task considering Henry’s ne’er-do-well father is in debtor’s prison and his comically earnest older brother is busy fighting the red coats on the battlefields of Maryland.
