Mission to America

"Kirn’s satirical novel follows two young men who are dispatched from a cloistered religious community in rural Montana to recruit converts from present-day America." Fun to think if this has wound up in the "wrong" hands.

Although the first book (with the dove) appeals to me more, I think the second one (the creepy transcendental-meditation floating guy) has more bite to it, and perhaps better conveys the jacket copy. The dove seems very innocent...

I need to be hit over the head with a frying pan to get me to read anything (satricial or otherwise) that deals with religious sects, so perhaps the dove? I don't know. Both are great, though.
