Dumpster, for God's Sake
by Ben Stoltzfus


Overview -

Equal parts sociological lore and screwball comedy, Dumpster, for God's Sake bends reality into fiction in a uniquely American exploration of the passions that make us human.

"Profoundly dystopian and completely believable." -Dean MacCannell, author of The Tourist

Loviers City believes that cleanliness leads to Godliness. But order quickly descends into chaos when a sighting of the Virgin occurs. Soon, thousands arrive to visit the spot where She appeared. But the pilgrims leave their mark, discarding refuse and besmirching Loviers City's All-America vision.

Suspense mounts as Rudy Squazza, the red-bearded ringleader of the homeless, and Jasmine, a rich teenager working on a high school project, fall in love. He is a dumpster diver and the victim of police brutality. She dresses in black leather, rides a red Ducati Supersport 750, and is known as the "Angel from Hell."

With compelling prose, canny insight, and artful empathy, Ben Stoltzfus brilliantly examines group behavior in a timely tale of collective zeal and righteous intent that explores a city's urgent quest for soul.
