    • Abstract:
      Summary: Horatio Cotton, aka "Bob," has been looking for some combination of spiritual and carnal salvation his entire life. When he steals a self-help book from a bookstore and calls the number scrawled inside the front cover, he discovers that he has a direct line to God, and that God likes to mess with him. Soon enough Bob finds a partner in Alice, a surprisingly sexy and good-humored nun, and they travel from America to Scotland and try to answer questions, such as Why are we here? What is love? Is there a Loch Ness monster? Does God send text messages? This is a smart, savvy, rambunctious, and hilarious novel, about the biggest questions that one man (or mankind) has ever asked. -- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2014 March #2

*Starred Review* Horatio Cotton has been questioning a lot of things lately. After finding out that his wife has been cheating on him with not one, not two, but a veritable Rolodex of strangers, Horatio steals a self-help book to figure out how to rebuild his life. He doesn't expect the 1-800 number scrawled on the inside front cover to be God's personal line, and he certainly doesn't expect to meet up with two other people who have purchased the same book, with the same phone number and the same results. This seemingly benign book was obviously meant to bring Horatio, Alice, and Lexington together, and they set out on a journey that just might answer all of their questions . . . and then some. Musician Springfield, no stranger to the literary world after penning his highly-touted memoir, Late, Late at Night (2010), branches into fiction with this novel. With shades of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (1979) and the clever, self-deprecating wit of Augusten Burroughs and Max Barry, Springfield's highly original work is the rare antidote to the celebrity ghostwritten books often found on today's best-seller lists. Captivating, poignant, and hilarious, Magnificent Vibration proves that some of the most interesting stories can come from pretty unlikely places. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
