Its the tale of Bobby Pickens, assistant manager of Sonny Boy Bargain Store, who gains a new lease on life, though he almost comes to regret it.

Bobbys handsome half brother F.X.-ex-con, ex-actor, and ex-husband three times over-moves in, and things go awry all over town. Mistaken identities- entangled romances with Burma, Toinette, and Donna Lee- assault and battery- charges of degeneracy- a nervous breakdown-it all comes to a head at a Christmas Eve party in a cabin on a poisoned swamp. This is sly, madcap romp that offers readers the gift of abundant laughter.Modern Baptists was included in Harold Blooms The Western Canon, in GQ magazines forty-fifth anniversary issue as one of the best works of fiction in the past forty-five years, and among Toni Morrisons favorite works by unsung writers in U.S.
