Overview

This is an account of the Second Coming as witnessed by a homeless alcoholic. While loosely modeled on the initial books of the New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), it interjects humor into the classic story (as is needed to hold the attention of modern readers) and presents it in a more readily understood contemporary format. Thus, Mary becomes Marya, a poor 16 year-old girl from Central Los Angeles, an evil televangelist takes the place of the money changers at the temple, and our bureaucracy is substituted for that of Rome's.

This book cuts right to the chase and pulls no punches. Although it's a horribly mixed metaphor, this statement is also completely true. The Gospel According to Condo Don is all at once a series of spiritual lessons that neither condescend nor condemn, an unapologetic portrayal of the best and worst things about modern society, and a hilarious exposé of the parodies that pass for government agencies. And scattered throughout are subtly beautiful passages and scenes that are as poetic as any to be found in the greatest works of literature. Fred Dungan has to be the most fearless author I've ever read. The only place he takes on bigger foes than he does in this book is on his own website, which I highly recommend--but only if you have at least an entire day to spend reading.
