Friday Gospels

£8.99

It’s Friday in the Leeke household, but this is no ordinary Friday and the Leekes are a little unusual: they are Lancastrian Mormons, and this evening their son Gary will return from 2 years as a missionary in Salt Lake City. His mother is planning a celebratory dinner – with difficulty, since she’s virtually housebound with an undiagnosed, embarrassing condition. What she doesn’t realise is that the rest of the family – her meek husband, disturbed oldest son, and teenage daughter – have other plans for the evening, each involving drastic and irrevocable action.

Description

It’s Friday in the Leeke household, but this is no ordinary Friday and the Leekes are a little unusual: they are Lancastrian Mormons, and this evening their son Gary will return from 2 years as a missionary in Salt Lake City.

His mother is planning a celebratory dinner – with difficulty, since she’s virtually housebound with an undiagnosed, embarrassing condition. What she doesn’t realise is that the rest of the family – her meek husband, disturbed oldest son, and teenage daughter – have other plans for the evening, each involving drastic and irrevocable action.

As the narrative baton passes from one Leeke to the next, disaster inexorably looms. Except that nothing goes according to plan, and the outcome is as unexpected as it is shocking. Giving a fascinating insight into the Mormon way of life, this blackly funny tale of innocence betrayed shows the havoc religion can wreak.
