“What should a woman do if she believes she is the mother of the second coming of Christ?” Incarnate is a psychological study about how delusion overpowers reason and the resilience of youth can persevere. Lara Joyner sees signs all around her that her older son, Dale, is the second coming of Christ, and must help him realize his true powers. Dale, who does not understand what it means to be Jesus, goes through the motions in order to protect both his mother and younger brother, Louis. Dale and Louis’s lives are turned upside down by their mother’s hallucinations and must make sense of this mysterious and dangerous life. Their father and older sister continually search for the brothers in order to bring them to safety.
Larry Weill is an author and artist from Western Kentucky. He has written novels, short stories, nonfiction articles, and poems which have appeared in many local, regional, and national journals. He is currently on his Incarnate March 2013 Book Tour.
