A short story from one of the country's most-acclaimed and popular novelists James Lee Burke's story collection, Jesus Out to Sea.

In his moving collection of short stories, James Lee Burke elegantly marries his flair for gripping storytelling with his urbane writing style and complex, fascinating character portraits. The backdop of the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast proves to be a versatile setting for Burke's stories, which cover the scope of the human experience from love and sex to domestic abuse to war and death and friendship.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Powerful short stories, quietly and passionately told.” 

    Guardian (London) on Jesus Out to Sea

  • “Burke demonstrates impressive range, sensitivity, and polish in these smaller-scale gems.”

    Publishers Weekly on Jesus Out to Sea

  • “Even at his darkest, however, Burke’s [work] is shot through with a beauty and clarity that is simultaneously painful and a joy to behold.” 

    Book Reporter on Jesus Out to Sea

  • “Burke’s volcanic novels of guilt, revenge and redemption wouldn’t have pegged him as a master of the highly wrought short story. Yet he’s something even better: a natural storyteller with a feeling for unequal conflicts and the pain of impotence and humiliation. Within a page or two, he can hook you.” 

    Kirkus Reviews on Jesus Out to Sea
