-And Other Tales of Christian Life ISBN: 1573120413
Noted author of nonfiction (THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF TELEVISION, CABLE, AND VIDEO and others) has written his first fiction collection of funny stories. The tongue-in-cheek tales gently tweak mainstream religion and small-town America. The characters are wonderfully eccentric and charmingly down to earth. They range from drunken midgets to oddball farmers and early feminist grandmothers in midwestern settings. The author tells us about pigs that learn to pray and potluck dinners that got all screwed up, in a delightful style reminiscent of Garrison Keillor.
