Megabelt is a fictional account of the South and its preoccupations with modern Christianity told from the point of view of a boy named Gil growing up in what is otherwise known as the "Bible Belt." The readers will find themselves steeped in the world of Gil whose experiences and questions lead him to unravel some of the Bible Belt's many dominant and passively adopted messages as well as its numerous types of characters. Gil is the quintessential mind of most inhabitants of the Belt. He is you. He is I. While his experiences greatly reflect those of the author, his encounters will never go unidentified with by the reader. Megabelt is a fabricated entity describing the world that exists between traditional Bible Belt culture and contemporary Bible Belt culture, the term explores the differences between as well as the ever-growing and ever-changing dynamics of the two. Megabelt has no message, no moral proclamation or agenda. Its purpose is to highlight the truths of the Bible Belt culture and therefore perform a complete overhaul of its patrons' thoughts and lifestyles for better or for worse. Any further sort of significance or meaning drawn from its pages is strictly subjective.
