Peter Peacock Passes proves the commonly held perception that for Preachers the pursuit of God and Sex are twin obsessions. Master story teller James Baker has captured with the most vivid prose the pitfalls and pratfalls of a young Texan who feels equally the desire to fulfill his Divine Vocation and his Natural Urge to find a mate. In his quest Petie Peacock struggles to survive the seductions of a college beauty queen, a delectable farmer's daughter, a high school cheerleader with Italianate mammary endowments, and a strange pair of twins named Golda and Silvia before at last he finds his Mary Sontag. He participates in the annihilation of a Homecoming float, pranks that result in blood, and the destruction of a prominent Baptist minister when pornographic pictures end up in his slide show of the Holy Land. He is humiliated in Indiana, abandoned in Chicago, and deluged in Texas before he discovers in his tumescence a way to face this brave new world. Share the fun.
