Product Details


“An insightful and drolly funny tale that skewers and celebrates contemporary American life.” –San Francisco Chronicle“Mark Twain meets Jonathan Franzen in Mission to America, Walter Kirn’s dark, funny road novel.” –Maxim"Hilarious. . . . Kirn doesn’t miss a chance to skewer consumerism, New Ageism, and ski-town magnates. The barbs are spot-on and the apostles, with their naivet? about everything from Cheetos and Wiccans to reality TV, are hopelessly endearing." –People"Kirn’s fourth novel is his most ambitious. . . . A tour de force." –The New York Times Book Review“Thank goodness that Walter Kirn, one of the nation’s best satirists, has made a funny, wise little novel. . . . A sly, tender, witty, probing of the nature of religious conviction.” –The Plain Dealer
