The novel that has inspired such ardent allegiance is the story of Mr. Bobby Pickens, of Tula Springs, Louisiana, who gets a new lease on life-and comes almost to regret it. A gentle yet madcap comedy, filled with farce and true feeling, Modern Baptists is a novel that offers its readers the gift of abundant laughter.

classic novel by J WilcoxReview:
Praise for James Wilcox:
‘Wilcox is a highly polished comic performer.’
‘Wilcox has a sophisticated control of pace, his humour the chill of home truth, and his squibs at the expense of small-town America are rarely off-target.’
Jim Crace, TLS
‘It’s not easy to write a really original novel… Yet Wilcox manages to do just that in his very funny book, MODERN BAPTISTS.’
