"The world is full of people bumping into one another. This leads to love, lust, fear, understanding, influence, debt, thievery, animosity, compassion, indifference, death and everything between those irregular coordinates. Santi: Lives of Modern Saints is a collection of characters experiencing all manner of circumstances, from grand and fractious to quiet intimacies. These stories are rich with beating hearts. It is populated by a series of riveting individuals seeking answers, redemption, or just some calm. This book is full of lives being shaken to the core, reaching for dignity, temporary delirium, or a warm embrace." --David Greenberger
"Finally, somebody has updated the strange and wonderful literary genre of hagiography. These stories reveal the mysteries and the wonder of the daily worldf we are only attentive to the important signs and meaningful details that exist all around us. Thank you Black Arrow for this astonishing collection of sacred fictional texts." --Michael Kimball
The saints in Santi: Lives of Modern Saints are not the saints of eternit.;They are the saints of the moment, saints of the small and undone. Their feast days are likely to be any Tuesday night eating Sam s Club macaroni and cheese. They are sociopathic loners, cubicle prophets, natural heretics, and frayed at the edges, as if painted by Francis Bacon or Dana Schutz. --Amy Bracken Sparks
