Waiting for the Flash Author:Paris Anderson "Paris Anderson uses the Mormon missionary experience as the poignant organizational context for observing people who love, fear, suffer, grow, change, fail and succeed. All missionaries do not experience their mission the way Elder Say does; but, some do, and those who care whether institutions, especially churches, are constructive or destruct... more »ive forces should understand this perspective."
-J. Bonner Ritchie, Chairman, Organizational Behavior Dept., Brigham Young University
"This first novel by ... Paris Anderson, is a good evidence of how fast Mormon literature is maturing. It will bring you new understanding, not only of a major part of Mormon experience, but ... [of] a central human experience, the journey from life as a mere sinner to life as a pilgrim."
-Eugene England, English Dept., Brigham Young University, Author of "Dialogues with Myself"
"Paris Anderson's account of missionary life ... has the ring of authenticity. His protagonist, Elder Ron Say, the ex-hard guy ... may be typical ... but his voice is genuine: confused, sweet, deluded ... [and] filled with a refreshing honesty. An interesting and enjoyable read."
