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.

Review:

Wilcox writes about the South I know: the complicated, intelligent, educated, integrated, contemporary South....He is sexy and passionate and messy. (Patricia Clarkson)

A Southern-fried P. G. Wodehouse . . . Enormous fun, and arguably the authors best since the sublime "Modern Baptists,"
"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)
Appealing, generous, energetic . . . Wilcox has a Dickensian knack for animating minor characters and an eye for the telling detail.
