Wrestling Jesus, by Joe R. Lansdale
I kind of thought I remembered Joe R. Lansdale, but not until after I read Wrestling Jesus, which was probably a good thing--turns out the other story I read by him is one I really disliked, so that experience would have kind of spoiled me. But this one is actually quite good--think Karate Kid with a professional wrestler. Indeed, it's a heartwarming tale, so quite the switch. Good writing and fun to read, so I can recommend it with 3 stars.
