"Jesus Sound Explosion" recalls Mark Curtis Anderson's quest for worldliness-through-rock as he came of age as a Baptist preacher's kid in the 1970s. All of the backsliding and revival, idealism and disillusionment one would expect is here, told with delightfully understated humor and set against the sounds of Led Zeppelin, Yes, and Bruce Springsteen. Here is a knowing look back on a time when Jesus Christ Superstar climbed the pop charts, "The Cross and the Switchblade" hit the big screen, and anxious parents played their kids' records backward in search of hidden messages from Satan.
Mark Curtis Anderson teaches writing at the University of Minnesota and lives in St. Paul with his wife, Patricia.
