Publisher's Summary

A towering figure in American literature, Norman Mailer here explores his concept of the nature of God. In a series of probing, challenging, and uncommon dialogues, Mailer establishes his own system of belief, one that rejects both organized religion and atheism. He presents a view in which our world is created by an artistic God who often succeeds but can also fail in the face of determined opposition by contrary powers in the universe. As war is waged for the souls of humans, we in our turn are given the freedom - indeed, the responsibility - to choose our own paths. Mailer believes that our individual behavior, a complex mix of good and evil, will be rewarded or punished with a reincarnation that fits the sum of our lives. Ever original and unpredictable, this inspiring verbal journey offers a unique vision of a world in which "God needs us as much as we need God".

Much food for the curious mind.

Penetrating look into the fascinating opinions of Norman Mailer on questions ranging from the nature of the universe to creating a political system that will best enable human fulfillment and happiness. A joy to read. And hear.
