Abstract
<p><em>Jesus in L.A.</em> follows the lives of Jesus, the collection’s protagonist and the twenty-first-century version of Jesus Christ; Jesus Christ, or “Christ,” the biblical version of Jesus Christ; and Jesus’ ex-girlfriend, the earth. Throughout the collection, Jesus struggles with the self-estrangement, cultural aimlessness, and consumerism inherent to modern-day America. Meanwhile, Christ and the earth serve as backgrounds of indifference, until Jesus, increasingly alienated, leaves the story’s setting, L.A. Un-religious, <em>Jesus in L.A.</em> is social commentary on contemporary America, where recent shifts in ideologies have manifested themselves in quiet details.</p>
