Neither too sweet nor too sour, Minor Gods and Major Scoundrels lays bare life and politics
in the 21st century. Poems and song lyrics are at turns reverent and irreverent, satirical
and tender. An imagined dialogue between Trump and Leonard Cohen, encounters with
God(s), golf, love, mortality—these and a vast array of other topics are subject to Kleinplatz’s unflinching gaze. Minor Gods and Major Scoundrels will appeal to an adult audience that likes to be provoked both to thought and laughter.
