THE PROPHETS by Robert Jones Jr. featured THE PROPHETS by Robert Jones Jr. on its list of “The 15 Best Books of 2021 (So Far).” They write: "In Robert Jones, Jr.’s lyrical debut novel, THE PROPHETS, Isaiah and Samuel are two enslaved young men who find refuge in each other — and their love becomes both sustaining and heroic in the face of a vicious world. Entertainment Weekly writes that 'While THE PROPHETS’ dreamy realism recalls the work of Toni Morrison…Its penetrating focus on social dynamics stands out more singularly.' Now that's a compliment." G.P. Putnam’s Sons published the novel on January 5, 2021.
