Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Jaz and Lisa Matharu are plunged into a public hell after their son, Raj, vanishes during a family vacation in the California desert. However, the Mojave is a place of strange power. Before Raj reappears— inexplicably unharmed, but not unchanged—the fate of this young family will intersect with that of many others, both past and present, who have traveled through this odd, remote town in the shadow of a mysterious rock formation known as the Pinnacles.
 
Among them are an 18th-century Spanish missionary, a former WWII aviation engineer turned desert-cult messiah, and an incognito rock star on the run. As their stories collide and build upon one another, Gods Without Men becomes a heartfelt exploration of the search for meaning in a chaotic universe.

Book Description: Vintage, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "A reflection and an embodiment of our new world of flattened time and space. . . . Gorgeous and wise." -Douglas Coupland, The New York Times Book Review "A beautifully written echo chamber of a novel." -David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas "A gripping thriller . . . Kunzru uses his extraordinary gifts as a storyteller-his brightly textured prose, his empathetic understanding of his characters, his narrative flair-to turn a tabloidy tale into a genuinely moving portrait of a marriage and the difficulties of parenthood." -Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "Kunzru is wise beyond his years, [a] novelist in superb command of his craft. . . . In his dazzling new novel, a desert is the setting, hero and villain. . . . Here is where the walking wounded come to pray to Yahweh, Allah, Vishnu, Coyote, the Brothers of Light. Here are cynical veterans from WWII, hard-bitten GIs fresh from Iraq, randy communards, washed-up bankers, wasted groupies. Here is death, sex, and rock-and-roll." -Marie Arana, The Washington Post "A stunning achievement. . . . Gods Without Men will undoubtedly prove to be one of the most important works of fiction published this year." -Darren Richard Carlaw, The New York Journal of Books "Kunzru weaves an array of competing stories, turning the novel into a kaleidoscope of clashing perspectives. . . . Gods Without Men stands out as a courageous attempt to engage with the complexities of faith and doubt in our postmodern world." -James Miller, The New York Observer "[A] pitch-perfect masterwork." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "An astonishing tour de force." - Kirkus (starred review) "Gathers momentum, power, and a fierce clarify to deliver a rich panorama while detailing our mutual antagonisms and deepest spiritual needs . . . Extraordinary." - Library Journal (starred review) "Mind-bending [a] thrill ride of a novel about searching for truth." -Michele Filgate, O, The Oprah Magazine "A compelling exploration of cosmic-American weirdness." -Rob Brunner, Entertainment Weekly "The prose is beautiful, every character is fully developed Through devotion to careful diction and seamless fluctuation between a dozen different writing voices, Kunzru's novel shines as brightly as the desert's setting sun" -Christine A. Hurd, The Harvard Crimson "Kunzru delivers a lively and frequently thrilling version of the quest novel." - Booklist (starred review) "Compulsively readable, skillfully orchestrated . . . This really is Kunzru's great American novel." - The Independent "Sometimes dizzying, sometimes puzzling, always enjoyable, Gods Without Men is one of the best novels of the year." - The Daily Telegraph "The literary skills of Hari Kunzru are evident throughout this complex and disturbing novel." -Annie Proulx, Financial Times "A countercultural mind-expanding quest . . . As a virtuoso performance, changing gears and styles every 20 pages or so, encompassing 18th-century friars and Hoxton hipsters, it will appeal to fans of David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas . . . Extraordinary." - The Guardian "Kunzru's lively fourth novel tackles its big themes without ever becoming ponderous or heavy-going. . . . Involving, thoughtful and thoroughly entertaining." - Daily Mail. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0307946975
