Soaked in night visions and pierced through by jagged memory, Talking God s Radio Show tells that peculiarly American story in which, as Faulkner once said, The past isn t forgotten, it isn t even the past. John High s Virginia backwaters call to mind the feral, hallucinogenic American landscapes of Cormac McCarthy s Child of God, as well as Faulkner s Sanctuary. His journey through their underworld of racial and sexual transgression sparks caustic, brain-searing consequences we discover, at the soul s black bottom, a resolute will to rise up and die, as if both actions were one in the same. This novel is an lyric ode to the heart s ineluctable damnation and redemption. Albert Mobilio
