Call it a miracle. Call it an accident at the sperm bank. But
Murray Katz, the celibate keeper of an abandoned lighthouse near
Atlantic City, has been blessed with a daughter conceived from the
union of his own seed and a holy ovum. Like her half brother Jesus,
Julie Katz can walk on water, heal the blind, and raise the dead.
But being the Messiah isn't easy. Poor Julie, bewildered about her
role in the divine scheme of things, is tempted by the Devil and
challenged by firebombing neo-Christian zealots - and that's just
the beginning of her fantastic odyssey through Hell, a seceded New
Jersey, and her own confused soul.
"Highly imaginative, funny and irreverent" ( "Publishers Weekly"
), James Morrow's "Only Begotten Daughter" garnered the World
Fantasy Award for best novel in 1990. Morrow, the "Washington Post"
said. "unerringly targets nerve endings that most readers won't
know they have until he zaps them... This novel invites comparison
with Vonnegut and even Rushdie." And "Aboriginal Science Fiction"
added, "We may be witnessing the birth of a classic, folks. So
stick around." We have, and it is.
