American Savior: A Novel of Divine Politics

WWJD. If you love satire, and can tolerate the use of Jesus as a fictional character who runs for president, you will find a lot of laughs on the pages of Roland Murullo’s book, American Savior: A Novel of Divine Politics. Satire can be risky, and Murullo uses the media as the best target of his biting wit. The names Murullo uses for the media stars requires little translation to identify the subject of his lampooning. An extra layer of reading pleasure comes from the manner in which the narrator, Russ Thomas, a reporter for a western Massachusetts television station, reflects on what the campaign of Jesus means for Russ himself.

Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
