About the Book

Rattlesnake Farming takes place at Christmastime in contemporary Santa Fe at the home of the rattlesnake “farmer” who hypothesizes that rattlesnake venom contains an “antidote” to Christianity. A novel about original sin and redemption, a family saga, realistic and magical, this is “a remarkable novel, at once hilarious and serious,” (The New Mexican) “an absorbing and unusual work by a writer of extensive abilities and elaborate imagination.” (Joseph Heller)
