Adam's Apple: Recipes for Forbidden Fruit

404 pages4 hours


Adam’s Apple is an eyebrow-raised look at sin and redemption in the postmodern world. Narrated by his press secretary in biography format, the plot carries Adam Ibsen from conception to election (the US House of Representatives--original to ultimate sin). He samples incest, patricide, lust, avarice, all of the top ten, savoring immorality like a sumo wrestler at the House of Tokyo’s buffet. He labors in both sides of the culture war, juggles reality and illusion, meaningful and absurd; in the end he discovers not a moral (the novel has no moral) but a point. He learns we live in realities distorted by our own interests, hopes, dispositions, and so are ultimately responsible for our own fate, no matter how unexpected.
