Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor

This Southern Gothic novel is peopled by heretics, bogus preachers, and fake religions ("The Church of Christ Without Christ"—hilarious), not to mention killers in gorilla suits. Overall I prefer O'Connor's short stories to this novel, but it's certainly worth reading if you haven't already.

Just came across this image of the first edition—looks pretty good.
