PEOPLE WHO KNOCK ON THE DOOR
"What's so new about Christ I don't know. When these magazine-peddlers knock on my door and ask me if I know about the Bible, I tell them I read the bible before they were born!"
The author's baleful gaze turns to born-again Christianity and anti-abortion pressures in small-town America, and the psychological turmoil therein and thereunder.
