The Five Wounds by Kirstin Valdez Quade


Down on his luck Amadeo hopes for redemption by playing Jesus in a local event. Meanwhile his pregnant daughter arrives on his (and his long-suffering mother’s) doorstep. Through a series of events, we bear witness to family conflicts, tragedy, humor, and yes, some redemption. This is a stunning depiction of an American community with characters I will never forget.
