Mormon Mayhem by Keaton Albertson
Mormon Mayhem: Uncouth Stories of a Rogue Missionary, Keaton Albertson. Compton, California: Fast Pencil Inc., 2010.
e-book, 275 pps.
Mormon Mayhem chronicles the six weeks or so that Keaton spent as a Mormon missionary, plus a bit of time before and after his experience. After some instruction in what to do, he was then assigned to some town in Florida with a partner. Fortunately for Keaton but not for the L.D.S., Keaton's partner was cool. Partner was willing to show Keaton how to score chicks. Together they plotted to ditch their witnessing efforts quite a bit of the time there. They also plotted how to cover that up. Then Something happened. It was a big Something. The result of Something happening is that Keaton stopped pretending his compliance and became outright defiant. He then decided to ditch the mask and went on his merry way doing what he does best-- irreverence and humor and sex with women.
sapphoq reviews says: Keaton Albertson is a worthwhile writer. His words zing with truth and have left me in choking hysterics and deep belly laughs. If you get offended easily by cursing or talk of unmarried sex, don't get this book. If you are an adult with a sense of humor and the understanding that some folks just don't do church well, by all means get this book. Anything that Keaton Albertson is designed to tickle the funny bone while imparting some basic fun truths about the human condition.
