The electrifying, "cutting-edge" (USA Today) debut work of fiction from Ron Currie, author of the forethcoming novel The One-Eyed Man (March 2017)

Ron Currie’s gutsy, funny book is instantly gripping: If God takes human form and dies, what would become of life as we know it? Effortlessly combining outlandish humor with big questions about mortality, ethics, and human weakness, Ron Currie, Jr., holds a funhouse mirror to our present-day world. God has inhabited the mortal body of a young Dinka woman in the Sudan. When she is killed in the Darfur desert, he dies along with her, and word of his death soon begins to spread. Faced with the hard proof that there is no supreme being in charge, the world is irrevocably transformed, yet remains oddly recognizable.

About the Author:

Ron Currie is the author of the forethcoming The One-Eyed Man and the novels Everything Matters!Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles and the short story collection God Is Dead, which was the winner of the New York Public Library’s Young Lions Award. Currie received the Addison M. Metcalf Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His books have been translated into fifteen languages. He lives in Portland, Maine.

From AudioFile:

This blackly humorous group of linked short stories begins with God, incarnated as an African woman, dying in the Sudan. She/he is eaten by dogs that can then communicate telepathically, so that the news gets out. The world goes to pot, then recovers, but never fully. Gabriel Barons voice is not naturally strong or engaging, but he uses it skillfully. His reading is expressive, accurate, and well paced, and he modulates his tone well to indicate different characters. But his capable performance cant quite compensate for the sometimes tedious, farfetched satire, which only strikes fire occasionally. Listening to this book is probably better than reading it, but its still not quite enjoyable. W.M. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
