About the Author

America Augustus Mirth, Edward Rucker, and Reverend Sanford Miles are on a collision course. Destiny, or perhaps free will, is about to bring together this trio of depleted American males at the First Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. What happens at that chapel, and in the days to follow up at the Mirth family farm in Middlebury, Vermont, will alter forever all three men’s lives. And America, the country, may never be the same again. Does Life have Meaning? Or is the Universe nothing but random Chaos? One black hole inside another, nothing more than an endless array of Russian Nesting dolls. Gawd Bless Amurica quietly asks these Big Questions as this amusing, picaresque novel unfolds in a dizzying blend of character developments, plot twists, and bizarre action sequences. A perfect metaphor for contemporary America, Gawd Bless Amurica will amuse, invigorate, and inspire all who experience its literary magic. As I write this it is Thanksgiving 2017. I wrote the first draft of this novel at least a decade ago, probably longer. It has been through an unknowable number of drafts. But at its core the novel has remained the same: an American fairytale. A parable. An allegory. An American fable about Life, Liberty, and the right to have a good time. When you write as many novels as I have on such a wide range of subjects it is difficult to decide which one best communicates your own personal philosophy. But Gawd Bless Amurica likely comes as close to executing the story I envisioned as anything I have written. It contains great stores of humor. Inside these pages are interesting characters deeply involved in their lives, looking desperately for understanding and love. There are plots and subplots to move the action. The writing is terse and always entertaining. Virtually all the gunk has been removed. And most important of all, it is truly an American tale, a story that could not happen anywhere but here in this schizophrenic bastion of democracy, capitalism, and materialism. Open and enjoy. Gawd Bless Amurica is like a fine wine and a bowl of Lebanese blond for your reading pleasure.
