In The Wake Of The Flagship

Continuing the story started in The El Cholo Feeling Passes, Barton's newest novel finds college basketball coach Richard Janus in an unlikely position: he has recently become the interim rector of Urban University, the woefully underfunded public college of Choctaw, Alkansea. When Choctaw is devastated by a major hurricane, Janus must battle with the unscrupulous heads of flagship ASU to keep Urban, the school he loves, from closing its doors forever. Told through the eyes of Metacom, the legendary Indian sachem of King Philip's War, Flagship is a blistering (and often hilarious) examination of the contradictions implicit in the American experience.


"RickBarton's IN THE WAKE OF THE FLAGSHIP brilliantly turns the historical novel on its head. At once hilarious, thought-provoking, and ultimately tragic, this novel is an opus, the work of a writer at the peak of his powers." —Joseph Boyden, Author of The Orenda
