The Crying Jesus

Young Adult - Fiction
       The Crying Jesus will delight and provoke all
    MacIntyre enthusiasts — young and old alike.
    The stories present a group of young
    protagonists eagerly balanced on the fulcrum
    between what is all too familiar and what can
    only be surmised. The wit is there as always —
    the laconic, authentic mockery of estranged
    young people — but the worlds out of which
    these voices speak form a new, eccentric
    universe. MacIntyre’s imagination is at once
    bizarre and illuminating.

    “In this, his second collection, Rod MacIntyre
    nabs us in every first paragraph . . . The Crying
    Jesus is a fine adult read for those of us who can
    face looking back. It’s an even finer young adult
    read for those who can face looking ahead.”
