Publishers Description: When the Supreme Being and his son decide that being supreme isn’t for them any more, it’s inevitable that things get a bit of a shake-up. It soon becomes apparent that our new owners, the Venturi brothers, have a very different perspective on all sorts of things. Take Good and Evil, for example. For them, it’s an outdated concept that never worked particularly well in the first place.

Review: Wow. One of the best reads I have had in a long time. Funny, acerbic, poignant and relevant to life, it is at once Hitchhiker-esque in approach and Still Life in regard. There is so much going on that any attempt to define any one thing that was best about it is impossible. The characters have a great depth of character and develop wonderfully with the movement. All the disparate pieces of the story line slowly converge into one for a raucous ending that perhaps lends substance to the as yet defined humanistic desire for a familial archetype.

The writing is crazy good and coupled with the social commentary, makes for a novel you can’t put down. GET THIS!
