Killing the Buddha: A Heretic’s Bible

An entirely original book that delivers the spiritual state of the nation in 13 dispatches that range from a prophet in pasties in Geneva, Illinois to a church caught in the ashes of Ground Zero. Interspersed are 13 versions of biblical scripture, recast by our favorite Buddha-killing writers, including Rick Moody, Francine Prose, Haven Kimmel, A.L. Kennedy, and many more. Vanity Fair described it as  “shot through with epiphanies and controversy” and The New York Observer called it “whip-smart… a genuine stab at a saucy kind of spirituality that’s as bold as it is refreshing.” This is the book that Publishers Weekly called “the most original and insightful spiritual writing to come out of America since Jack Kerouac first hit the road.”
