Publisher's Summary

Reverend Maloney isn't the world's greatest spiritual advisor. He drinks gin out of his coffee cup and has sex dreams about the Holy Ghost. His best friend Eli isn't perfect either, but he's a chess genius, so Maloney sees an opportunity in traveling around the country so Eli can win major chess tournament after chess tournament (while Maloney pockets Eli's winnings).
Chased by a blind headhunter named Jack Cataract, the Reverend, his girlfriend, and Eli race across North America and around New York City, from Washington Square Park to a jet ski ride to the great green gown of Lady Liberty.
In this uproariously funny, unabashedly sexy, and highly anticipated novel, Michael Bible delivers a devastating story about the American South, chess tournaments, and one debauched reverend's struggle with spirituality. In the spirit of Nicholson Baker and Barry Hannah, Sophia is an adventure with a raunchy and obviously flawed cast of characters, written with enormous heart.

Great writing and funny as hell. Can't wait for the sequel. Love to also hear more from Patrick Stillwell.

True Detective Meets

I was a big fan of the narration and the book. Kind of a True Detective meets surreal comedy. Awesome all around.
