Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus: Prostitution and Religious Obedience in the Bible by Chester BrownThe idiosyncratic master Chester Brown continues his thoughts on sex work
The iconoclastic and bestselling cartoonist of Paying for It: A comic-strip memoir about being a john and Louis Riel returns and with a polemical interpretation of the Bible that will be one of the most controversial and talked-about graphic novels of 2016. Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus is the retelling in comics form of nine biblical stories that present Chester Browns fascinating and startling thesis about biblical representations of prostitution. Brown weaves a connecting line between Bathsheba, Ruth, Rahab, Tamar, Mary of Bethany, and the Virgin Mother. He reassesses the Christian moral code by examining the cultural implications of the Bibles representations of sex work.
Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus is a fitting follow-up to Browns sui generis graphic memoir Paying for It, which was reviewed twice in The New York Times and hailed by sex workers for Browns advocacy for the decriminalization and normalization of prostitution. Brown approaches the Bible as he did the life of Louis Riel, making these stories compellingly readable and utterly pertinent to a modern audience. In classic Chester Brown fashion, he provides extensive handwritten endnotes that delve into the biblical lore that informs Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus.
