Praise For Miracles, Inc.…
“Miracles, Inc. by T.J. Forrester is a kind of miracle itself. Pleasure and humor and suspense are guaranteed, double-d. Forrester is that good—like Elmore Leonard writing Elmer Gantry. Hot dog!”
—Clyde Edgerton, author of The Bible Salesman
“T.J. Forrester has achieved with his debut novel a rare blend of suspense, satire, and flawed but sympathetic characters. More than just a literary page-turner, MIRACLES, INC. asks important questions about religion, belief, and the exploitation of our nation’s faithful that I’m sure to be thinking about for a long time to come.”
—Amy Greene, bestselling author of Bloodroot
"A vibrant first novel . . . Showing the push-the-envelope spirit of a Terry Southern, Forrester has the makings of a formidable talent."
—Kirkus (starred review)
"There are terrible deeds throughout the novel, but they are accompanied by comedy and moments of tenderness. Forrest never explicitly makes this declaration, but the story speaks clearly enough: bad things can befall those who exploit the faith and prayers of others."
