What People Are Saying

Jonathan Woods
"badbadbad is a strange, off-trail romp through a Deep South inhabited by Born Again preachers and twisted badbadbad girls. The ghosts of Elmer Gantry and Chester Himes haunt this hip-hop vision of the new South." --( Jonathan Woods, author of Bad Juju)
Melissa Febos
"Jesús Ángel García has given us a story that not only mimics but answers our manic, semi-virtual lives and the question of how to redeem ourselves: a rollicking, sexy, razor-witted romp with heart." --(Melissa Febos, author of Whip Smart)
Tony DuShane
"badbadbad is a blasphemous literary adventure. Jesús Ángel García is more than a powerful new voice of our generation; his cult is bent on taking over heaven and earth." --( Tony DuShane, author of Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk)
Michael Seidlinger
"Jesús Ángel García successfully merges the pulpy feel of those old-fashioned gas station novels with something as dark and surreal as a David Lynch film." --( Michael Seidlinger, author of The Day We Delay)
Kyle Minor
"If Philip Roth and Flannery O'Connor had a disinherited love child who worked simultaneously for Jimmy Swaggart and The Advocate, he might grow up to write a novel like Jesús Ángel García's badbadbad." - -(Kyle Minor, author of In the Devil's Territory)
Lindsay Hunter
"An exhilarating and frightening book, badbadbad is about the laying of hands—to heal, to arouse, to end..." - -(Lindsay Hunter, author of Daddy's)
