Life is eccentrically calm ...
Life is eccentrically calm until Jet launches a series of Zen-like break-ins. Only the display materials are stolen from Cordin's Jewelers. The grocery bags are missing from the Food House. The Penultimate National Bank opens with no deposit slips. By the time the media, particularly the Weekly World Scene, grab hold of it the town is in an uproar. Then the Quite Reverend John Joseph Matthew Paul III pitches his orange and blue striped tent in the parking lot of the now-closed Two Guys store and holds a revival meeting which changes everyone's life. Including his own.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Skywriting at Night is his first novel. The autobiography he co-wrote of Dr. Isaiah "Ike" McKinnon, the former chief of police of Detroit, will be published in the fall of 2000 by Sleeping Bear Press of Chelsea, Michigan. The first compilation of his columns will be out about the same time. He won the Virginia Governor's Screenwriter's Competition for his original screenplay, "Velveeta and the '63 Fleetwood Stigmata", created and marketed a series of novelty gift items including Earl the Dead Cat and the Silent Vigil Foam Rubber Wind Chimes, and sold candles on the streets of New York City.

I've been reading Mad Dog's humor column for quite some time so I was happy to see his novel came out. Honestly, I was expecting (or should I say dreading) a steady stream of jokes. But it isn't! It's a wonderful novel that kept me reading straight through. Sure it's funny, but it's insightful, inventive, and I've already turned four friends onto it and they all loved it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
