Synopsis

What if the Second Coming didn’t quite come off as advertised? What if “the Corpse” on display in that funky roadside zoo is really who they say it is—what does that portend for the future f western civilization? And what if a young clairvoyant named Amanda reestablishes the flea circus as popular entertainment and fertility worship as the principal religious form of our high-tech age? Another Roadside Attraction answers those questions and a lot more. It tell us, for example, what the sixties were truly all about, not by reporting on the psychedelic decade but by recreating it, from the inside out. In the process, this stunningly original seriocomic thriller is fully capable of simultaneously eating a literary hot dog and eroding the borders of the mind.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Before Da Vinci, before Holy Blood, there was Another Roadside Attraction. The Second Coming didn't quite come off as planned.

(Remember this was written in 1971 and while the sixties were dying, revolutionary fervour was still somewhat in the air.) Continued on the next page Page 1 — Page 2 — Page 3 — Page 4 — Page 5
