Angel of the Danube
Barry Monroe's Missionary JournalBook - 2000
Angel of the Danube is a refreshing, exciting, moving-and-comical-account of a young man's successful search for spiritual wholeness. Writing deftly in California hip dialect (Mark Twain did almost as well in Huck Finn), Mitchell has hung a rich and literarily satisfying coming-of-age novel upon an infrastructure of Austrian folklore and the ups-and-downs of Mormon missionary life. Alan Mitchell is Mormon literature's answer to Saul Bellow's Henderson the Rain King. Richard H. Cracoft, English Professor,Center for Religous Values in Literature, Brigham Young University
