If God is not available, then what is? In this collection of "coming of age" poems, Claudia Keelan attempts to answer that question by testing the limits of influence on one writer's notions of self and God. Those influences, or teachers, are as varied as literature, family, and organized religion. Through many voices, The Secularist shapes new poetic forms through which God may be glimpsed.
