American Desert by Percival Everett
Book DescriptionTheodore Street is driving towards the ocean where he plans to drown himself. But, on the way, he is hit by a van and he sails through the windscreen, his head sliced from his body. At his funeral days later, he sits up in his coffin, apparently resurrected. Theodore becomes an object of derision and morbid curiosity to the press, a prized specimen for scientists and Satan incarnate to an obscure religious cult deep in the desert. Fascinating, surreal, and wildly satirical, Percival Everett sends up the press, religion, UFOs and the military, and offers a meditation on what it is to be alive.

Books By Author Percival Everett
Walk Me to the Distance, Paperback (October 2015)
First published in 1985, Walk Me to the Distance was Percival Everett's second novel, a hauntingly dark tragicomedy of the modern West, still clinging to a mythical heritage and code of frontier justice. With spare strokes Everett paints a telling landscape of big-sky country, where the mere act of living can be hard, cruel, and heart-stopping.
Trout's Lie, Paperback / softback (October 2015)View all books by Percival Everett
In "Trout's Lie," Percival Everett explores the semantic relationship between sense and so-called nonsense and questions whether either is actually possible."
