From the back-cover of Deer Hunting with Jesus:
"By turns brutal, tender, incendiary, and seriously funny, Deer Hunting with Jesus is a potent antidote to what Bageant dubs 'the American hologram' -the televised, corporatised, virtual reality that distracts us from the insidious realities of American life".
A good book, reflecting his own author.
My sympathies go to his wife and children.
I guess, we'll never have that beer, after all. Rest in peace, my Yank friend.
