The Battling Priests of Corpus Christie by Jervey Tervalon - NewOrleans Noir

Pretty cool story here.

We have two priests; one is a bigot the other a skirt-chasing drunk. Pretty rich territory when you also add a hatred between the two.

The story is told by a young adult girl of mixed race.

I would really like to read this story in a novel-length form. I found the short story less than satisfying because the conflict just resolves itself, in two paragraph0,s away from the narrators' eyes.

Boy, I liked the set up though. I really think the author has a great idea for a cracking read.
