An astute and comical dissection of the culture wars-by the author of the much-loved Modern Baptists For More Than twenty years, James Wilcox has been cherished by reviewers and readers alike as one of the most talented American humorists. Since his classic Modern Baptists (picked by Harold Bloom as one of the few contemporary novels in his Western Canon), Wilcox has been charting the intricate spiritual topography of the South with inimitable wit and empathy. His "real comic genius" (Anne Tyler, The New York Times Book Review) has never been so brilliantly deployed as in this hilarious look at the peculiarly American cultural divisions of our times.
James Wilcox is the author of eight novels. The director of Creative Writing at Louisiana State University, he was the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship.
