The Way of the Trumpet by Peter Josyph

Peter Josyph's the way of the trumpet is the first novel written in haiku form. Read equally well aloud or alone, the way of the trumpet creates its own rhythm while bringing us into the lives of Josyph's highly original, often hilarious and frequently profound characters. This is a departure from literary convention with a highly literate style. The way of the trumpet shows us the novel in truly rare form.
