WATCH THE BOOK TRAILER
A satirical novel
about love, the crackup of the United States, and refusing to back down when the whole world calls you crazy.
It's two decades in the future.
A Christian college student named Ace Hartwick has just destroyed his neighbor's so-called "wife"—actually a sexbot named Sally—in a trash compactor.
Soon, Ace will be on trial for murder.
There are no safe spaces in Douglas Wilson's stories.
"Ride Sally, Ride proves it is just as true in his near future sci-fi as it was in his skewering of worldly evangelicalism in Evangellyfish."
"Wilson grasps the untold ambiguities that contemporary pastors experience. This is realistic fiction. No, make that just realistic."
"Scathing . . . Insightful . . . Hilarious"
Evangelicalism is ripe for satire and Wilson does it well.
Doug Wilson isn't writing about 'those crazy Christians'
"He's writing about us crazy Christians . . . Wilson understands better than most that 'judgment must begin at the house of God,' and that God still dwells there despite the most squalid conditions."
Not a Christian insider novel
"And it's not gentle. It cuts deeply and shamelessly. . . But it will make sense to anyone who's witnessed the horrifying antics, political quagmires, and social foolishness common to American experience and to its Christian evangelical subculture in particular."
