Johnathan Wilber’s Out Beelzebub! is an absurd and funny take on obsession, gay weddings, cults, postmodern parenting, entrepreneurship, and tiny dogs. As you can see, there’s a lot going on in this book, but it’s a joyride as Wilber successfully maintains the reader’s focus by keeping a tight grip on the plotline at any given moment.
The main character, Damien-Victor Kunh-Keesey, suffers from a kind of celebrity worship syndrome tinged with petty jealousy and explicitly homicidal tendencies. He lives in a hostile world and much of the hostility is of his own making, yet there is a naive openness and strange likeability to the character that generates sympathy and keeps the reader turning the pages.
Out Beelzebub! is recommended reading for anyone looking for witty prose and an entertaining storyline that moves from a bookstore riot to finding true love through incarceration to accessorized celebrity Chihuahuas.
