June CSFF Blog Tour Day 1: Imaginary Jesus, by Matt Mikalatos

Matt’s savoring a cup of coffee at his favorite Communist bookstore…with Jesus. He’s been enjoying Jesus’ company for a while now, and although Jesus seems to be invisible to everybody else, Matt’s found him to be a pretty regular guy and handy for heading off things like parking tickets and other minor inconveniences.

On this particular day, however, a big, hairy man barges into the coffee shop, full of righteous indignation and smelling of fish. He picks a fight with Jesus, and Matt’s tidy little world comes crashing down. The smelly guy with the solid right hook claims to be the Apostle Peter, and worse than that, he insists that Matt’s Jesus is no Jesus at all.

He’s an Imaginary Jesus, and he’s up to no good. The bogus Jesus bolts, Peter and Matt in hot pursuit. Before they know it, they’re up to their armpits in Imaginary Jesuses, and Matt’s beginning to wonder if he ever knew the genuine article at all.

Matt Mikalatos’ Imaginary Jesus is a rollicking romp through time, space, imagination, and the human heart. No sacred cow is left un-roasted as the author fires up his satirical grill with a hefty squirt of comedic lighter fluid.

Beware standing too close to that fire, Dear Reader. You might discover the tantalizing aroma is mingled with the acrid scent of your own scorched eyebrows. I laughed, I cried, and it’ll probably take a few months for my eyebrows to grow back.

More on that tomorrow. Until then, enjoy the delicious fare offered at the other stops on this month’s CSFF Blog Tour:

    1. I appreciate the well-wishes, Matt…I don’t have much hair left to lose, but I’m optimistic I’ll make a full recovery.

      You’ve written a very entertaining story with a timeless message. Thanks for sharing it.

  1. Love your grill analogy, it made me laugh! Happy to say I suffered no eyebrow casualties. I’m looking forward to reading more about what you thought of the book.
