About this title

Synopsis:

Praised by Publishers Weekly as "intriguing and funny" and written by a National Book Award nominee, this "desert noir" traces a draft-dodging evangelical's road trip across the Mojave. Obadiah Wheeler encounters a world of temptation in the form of a pretty girl who's on the run, and his spiritual journey through the badlands is further complicated by an extraterrestrial relic and multiple homicides. A New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice.

From the Back Cover:

"[An] accomplished new novel that confirms the promise of Nunn's first book, Tapping the Source .... Nunn writes with a keen portentousness about the warped people in this wasteland, creating what might be described as a western gothic. His examination of cultish thought is respectful, intriguing, and funny, in a narrative that never loses dramatic momentum."--Publishers Weekly
Lay preacher Obadiah Wheeler is responsible for conducting a group of missionaries into "unassigned territory," a stretch of Nevada wilderness open to evangelistic efforts. Obadiah's faith is shaky at best and no match for the tempting charms of the co-proprietor of a desert museum, raven-haired beauty Delandra Hummer. Together the two set off into the vast emptiness of the Mojave in search of a buyer for the museum's prize exhibit, an extraterrestrial relic. Their hilarious road trip--punctuated by encounters with UFO cults, wild rednecks, and hippie burnouts--throbs with violence and madness as well as the possibility of spiritual enlightenment. This "desert noir" by National Book Award nominee Kem Nunn was recognized as a New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice; the author has also written for and produced numerous TV projects, among them John from Cincinnati, Deadwood, and Sons of Anarchy.
