ISLAND OF THE SEQUINED LOVE NUN
This author will not be to everyone's taste. He is quirky and funny, sometimes profane and sacrilegious. One of his best known tales is Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. If that is too much for you try one of his that is completely different: A vampire tale called Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story. As you might guess from the titles, Moore is a bit different. But if you are looking for laugh-out-loud funny and you really like something different, give him a try. He has a number of books available, none of which has ever been made into a movie.
This particular story is about Tucker Case, a disgraced pilot, an isolated South Pacific island, shark people, a talking fruit bat, atypical missionaries and a native religious cult that worships a WWII bomber pilot. It all makes since - kinda - in the end. Tucker Case shows up again in a later novel by Moore, The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror. As I mentioned - not for everyone.
