Publisher's Summary

Reverend Maloney isn't the world's greatest spiritual advisor. He drinks gin out of his coffee cup and has sex dreams about the Holy Ghost. His best friend Eli isn't perfect either, but he's a chess genius, so Maloney sees an opportunity in traveling around the country so Eli can win major chess tournament after chess tournament (while Maloney pockets Eli's winnings).

Chased by a blind headhunter named Jack Cataract, the Reverend, his girlfriend, and Eli race across North America and around New York City, from Washington Square Park to a jet ski ride to the great green gown of Lady Liberty.

In this uproariously funny, unabashedly sexy, and highly anticipated novel, Michael Bible delivers a devastating story about the American South, chess tournaments, and one debauched reverend's struggle with spirituality. In the spirit of Nicholson Baker and Barry Hannah, Sophia is an adventure with a raunchy and obviously flawed cast of characters, written with enormous heart.

    Story
    "Excellent and Refreshing!"

    Definitely a quirky novel but many readers are likely to find the unconventional storytelling to be as fresh as it is addictive.

    Worth a listen for sure!

    "Fine Southern storytelling"

    Parenthood. Michael Bible tells an old story with Southern flair and an edgy disregard for cultural norms. I loved it. And Patrick Stillwell does a standout job narrating the tale. I'm going to look for more...

    "Badass"

    This book is cool as hell. Dark, weird mysterious Southern surreal. Narrator is on point and that music!
