The Iron Boys is a novel in the form of an eccentric monologue by one Corbel Penner who brings the reader, through his unique language, obsessions, and relationships, deeply inside the mentality of another time. Corbel becomes a member of a secret, quasi-Luddite band of rebels in the early 1800s. The actual Luddites, and their three years of machine breaking, are to this day mysterious, and Frick has taken that historical murk as license to postulate a deeper, perhaps alchemical layer of transformation. Of urgent import to our time, the story conveys the dislocations, the rants and daydreams, the idiocies and inspirations, accruing as the social contract unravels.
