9 BLACK JESUS SIMoNe FelIce A young marine, nicknamed Black Jesus by his fellow soldiers, returns home after being blinded by a roadside bomb in Iraq. Gloria, a stripper who flees her violent boyfriend in Los Angeles on a moped, arrives in Catskills Mountains, New York, where Black Jesus is being looked after by his mother. When their lives become intertwined, the reader discovers and understands how they came to be together. The reader can’t help but feel drawn to the two main characters as they navigate their way through life. While essentially a love story, the author, who is a musician and poet, paints beautiful imagery with his description of a lost America.
