Only begotten daughter : a novel
James Morrow
Adult Fiction MORROW

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

Julie Katz, the daughter of God, is born to a celibate Jewish recluse in Atlantic City, N.J.; meanwhile, the Reverend Billy Milk is preparing for the Second Coming by establishing the criteria described in Revelations. ``Morrow has penned a lively, ironic, often raunchy gospel,'' said PW.

From Library Journal:

An accident--or a miracle--in a New Jersey sperm bank results in the ``virgin birth'' of Julie Katz, a young woman with the power to perform miracles and a healthy fear of ending up like her older brother, crucified long ago for claiming to be the ``Son of God.'' Modern theology falls prey to Morrow's ( This Is the Way the World Ends ) satirical arsenal in this irreverently humorous, fundamentally serious novel reminiscent of the works of Philip K. Dick. Recommended. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
