9780924047213: Screen Door Jesus & Other Poems

Fiction. Christopher Cook vividly paints a portrait of small town America in his humorous and often irreverent collection of ten short stories, "Screen Door Jesus". The title story considers the chaos that ensues in Bethlehem, Texas when an image of Jesus appears on Mother Harper's screen door. "And I Beheld Another Beast" features Vernalynn threatening to shoot down a television antenna she insists is sinful. In "Serpent", a woman transforms into a snake for committing a mysterious sin.
