Jeff Wells is national affairs editor and principal satirist for Frank magazine. He has written for a number of Canadian and American periodicals, as well as for radio and television. He is the author of the novel Anxious Gravity.
The life of a naive, born-again teen can sometimes seem God-awful, as Gideon discovers at Overcomer Bible Institute. Having given himself over to religion, Gideon quickly finds his newfound faith challenged by sexually aggressive women, a disturbed student armed with a power drill, and Siamese-twin evangelists.
A satiric look at the religious and secular worlds, Anxious Gravity succeeds at the daunting task of being both thoughtful and wildly entertaining.
"Jeff Wells is the most consistently funny humorist in Canada today." -Michael Bate, Editor-in-Chief, Frank
Best of all is Wells's guerilla cynicism, a kind of wry despair over our persistent hope for meaning in an absurd world.
