"In the tradition of Denis Johnson's Jesus' Son, Brunetti's wondrously wandering writing is taut and cryptic, vivid and hallucinatory, rendering an irony-laden, aberrant odyssey for his impossibly likable protagonist."

-Franco D'Alessandro, playwright & poet, Roman Nights, Stranger Love, and Everything Is Something Else




Ever get the feeling that your life is caught up in some kaleidoscopic Jungian dream and that you weren't exactly dying but still everything you'd ever been is flashing before your eyes-and then when you wake from this dissolutive dream, your reality remains altered and time has become concurrent and characters from thirty-plus years ago walk into your life again, if ambiguously, and press you on matters of a sacred-profane written text that you never completed?




Heretical and outrageous, ironic and absurd, Newer Testaments scores a hit in the heart of where the existential meets the fated, and the writer's task becomes both revelatory and abject. Into this formidable personal struggle a cast of untoward and/or diaphanous characters rotate including The Jesus Girl, John Baptist, Macbeth, King Kisko, The Tree Girl, Nurse Mother, a glass satyr and a French New Wave Mother. Has the nameless narrator lost his mercurial mind, or is this a subconscious-shadow-world sojourn he's been practicing for all his life?-the keys to the kingdom of being.
