Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk (Soft Skull Press)
“A surprisingly sweet coming-of-age story told through the eyes of a horny, Jehovah-battered, Watchtower-wielding, door-to-door proselytizer.” – Mark Haskell Smith (Blown, Naked At Lunch)
“Addictive, informative, heartbreaking, and utterly satisfying.” – Janet Fitch (White Oleandar, The Revolution of Marina M.)
