Is it possible for God to fall in love, unwittingly and in an almost ridiculous way?
And that too with a girl like any other, totally imperfect?
A forceful and unique novel, a comic fable on a creature like any other: the one from which everything originates.
A diary that even towards the end doesn't deny what God thinks of man right from the beginning: "What has prevailed to this moment is my infinite kindness. But the time has now come to extinguish man for good. Just as I've done with dinosaurs and mammoths, each time getting out of the way a whole bunch of beings. Species simply get too boring after sometime, just like any other thing: you simply need new faces, fresh air". Intimately convinced of his supremacy over the other species on earth, man turns out to be just like all other living creatures, which are all the creation of God, who, for once, shows his more human face.
A sly critique of the hypocrisy and hubris that underlie faith in religion, science, and macho careerism, I Am God takes us on a hilarious and provocative romp through the Big Questions with the universe's supreme storyteller.
