All I need is the Lord's Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance and someone to play 'Dixie' if I die."

Rev. 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 jetski ride to the great green gown of Lady Liberty.

Barry Hannah's protégé delivers a funny, devastating Southern novel about America, chess tournaments, and one debaucherous reverend's struggle with spirituality. Like the greatest works of Barry Hannah, this is an adventure with a raunchy and obviously flawed cast of characters, written with enormous heart.
