Rapture

(1996)
A novel by

 
 
Part romance, part allegory, part satire of modern culture, David Sosnowski's first novel is a wry takeoff on the current New Age angel phenomenon. Zander Wiles, a small Detroit dope dealer, feels a powerful itch on his back and soon discovers he's growing wings. The epidemic of "Angelism" spreads, and in no time Congress has gotten involved, angel support groups crop up, militant factions create the Feathered Nation, and America has a new and otherworldly minority on its hands. Zander, the first celebrity angel, eventually crosses paths with Cassie O'Connor, also a fledgling semi-divinity, and their romance carries the plot to its manic close. Sosnowski has a dry, wicked sense of humor, and his descriptions of angelic movie theaters, bars, and bumper stickers are priceless.
