Book Description Random House, 1976. hardcover. Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st edition. New York. 1976. August 1976. Random House. 1st Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. ISBN:0394499255. 212 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by The Artworks. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Returning from a year in Rome, Father Anthony Anthony suffers an acute reverse culture shock and cannot decide whether he is crazy, or America is. It takes a few weeks in the wastes of Texas, and a harrowing entanglement in kidnapping, torture, and death to shake his doubts and force him to make up his mind. First, he finds the country swept by a craze for the occult - for demonology and exorcisms - and wonders why Satan seems a certainty, but God an absurdity. Wherever he turns religion is treated as an interesting atavism at best, as evidence of charlatanism or insanity at worst. He still believes, but can’t see how that matters in Austin, Texas, where his fellow priests huddle in the air-conditioned rectory, watching NFL football or debating whether to advertise for vocations in Playboy or Penthouse. When Tony has nearly decided to abandon the Church, a woman calls and tells him that Noland Meadlow, a nationally renowned computer analyst and physical culturist, has been engaged to kidnap her ‘Jesus Freak’ son and deprogram him. She begs him to accompany Meadlow and provide a Catholic influence during the proceedings. Despite misgivings, Tony goes along, perhaps to test whatever remains of his faith. What follows is a dizzying descent through south Texas to Billie and Zack’s Adobe Shacks, where Tony tries to fight Meadlow for the young man’s soul, but ends up struggling to understand the boy’s exaltation and zealotry. In the truest tradition of comedy as interrogatory drama, there are spirited debates and parallel discussions with Billie and Zack which mine an earthier humor. But throughout EARTHLY BREAD, comedy is in the service of religion, rather than at its expense, probing through the profane toward an affirmation of the sacred. Two elements - the audacious comic gift that reviewers praised in Michael Mewshaw’s first two novels and the deep concern for public issues that brought wide critical acclaim to his third, THE TOLL - are combined in EARTHLY BREAD to convey a powerful sense of urgency about the survival of the spiritual impulse in a secular world. Exposing the appalling way in which the beliefs and civil liberties of many Americans are violated in the name of a spurious rationalism, EARTHLY BREAD will force readers to reassess the their own religious tolerance and their attitude toward those at the margins of society. inventory #5622.
