Two yammering British intellectuals travel to the American south to form a new religion-with Canadians The sequel to the 2010 hit Spurious-which was acclaimed by the Los Angeles Times, the Guardian, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Times Literary Supplement, and the Washington Post, which called it “fearsomely funny”- Dogmafinds Lars and W. still, continually and without cease, arguing, although this time in a different country. This time out, the duo embarks on a trip to the American Deep South, where, in company with a band of Canadians who may or may not be related to W., they attempt to form a new religion based on their philosophical studies. Their mission is soon derailed by their inability to take meaningful action, their endless bickering, the peculiar behavior of the natives, and by a true catastrophe: they can’t seem to find a liquor store that carries their brand of gin. Part Nietzsche, part Monty Python, part Huckleberry Finn, Dogmais a novel as ridiculous and profound as religion itself. From the Trade Paperback edition.
