The Crying Jesus

ISBN: 978-1-895449-70-9

trade paper /132 pages / 1997

 The Crying Jesus will delight and provoke all MacIntyre enthusiasts — young and old alike. The stories present a group of young protagonists eagerly balanced on the fulcrum between what is all too familiar and what can only be surmised. The wit is there as always — the laconic, authentic mockery of estranged young people — but the worlds out of which these voices speak form a new, eccentric universe. MacIntyre’s imagination is at once bizarre and illuminating.

“In this, his second collection, Rod MacIntyre nabs us in every first paragraph . . . The Crying Jesus is a fine adult read for those of us who can face looking back. It’s an even finer young adult read for those who can face looking ahead.”
Quill and Quire.
