Book Description

‘Take its hilarity on any level you want. The more you engage, the more you’ll see. If you don’t see more than a very satisfying jokiness, enjoy it. There are worse things in life than laughing yourself silly. And if it seems like there’s more, you might want to decide if you care to buck up religion, socio-economic expectations, sex, human-vehicular psychology, and human-deity vendettas.’Anu Lakhan, The Caribbean Review of BooksCrocodile tells the story of Josephine Hemp, a simple but devout Catholic housemaid who feels abused and abandoned by God. To get revenge, she captures a consecrated host which, under the ancient Church doctrine of transubstantiation, is not merely a symbol of the Godhead, but the actual living God miraculously contained in what seems to the unbelieving naked eye a mere wafer. God, impregnated in the host, refuses to discuss his actions with his captor, provoking her to imprisoning the almighty. What follows is an ironic yet entirely logical series of madcap events as the parish priest, alerted to this sacrilege by a philandering Pentecostal minister, tries to liberate God from unlawful imprisonment.This sprightly fable exploring the incalculable extent to which believers are often driven by their faith, is played out with impeccable logic against the Jamaican countryside over which broods the menacing presence of a river dwelling crocodile. Its resolution will both surprise and delight.About the author: Anthony C. Winkler was born in Jamaica, and was educated in Jamaica and America.
