Description

Adam Gorozpe, a respected businessman in Mexico, has a life so perfect that he might as well be his namesake in the Garden of Eden - but there are snakes in this Eden too. For one thing, Adam's wife Priscila has fallen in love with the brash director of national security - also named Adam. Another unlikely snake is the little Boy-God who's started preaching in the street wearing a white tunic and stick-on wings, inspiring Adam's brother-in-law to give up his job to follow this junior deity and implore Adam to do the same. Even Elle, Adam's mistress, thinks the boy is important to their salvation - especially now that it seems the other Adam has put out a contract on Adam Gorozpe.

Professional reviews

"This tale harkens back to the biblical story of Adam, the snake, and the problem of evil. Robert Fass handles the narration capably despite the long and complex structure of the sentences. While his pace can become slightly monotonous over time, this may be an inherent quality of the text itself. The ironic tone underlying the main character's thoughts is one of the signature features of Fass's narration. He varies the emphasis of certain words to bring across the intended sarcasm. Still, overall, the story is slow to develop, making it difficult for the listener to stay interested. M.R. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
