Description
After Cass Seltzer's book The Variety of Religious Illusion turns out to be a surprise best seller, he becomes a celebrity, "the atheist with a soul," and wins the attention of "the goddess of game theory," the stunning Lucinda Mandelbaum, in this hilarious tale of genius, love, and philosophy from MacArthur Fellow Rebecca Newberger Goldstein. Then a former girlfriend appears, looking ageless and inviting him on a quest for immortality through biochemistry, and Cass is further visited by two people who have inspired him—his former professor, who has a suspicious obsession with messianism, and an angelic six-year-old math prodigy who comes from his mother's Hasidic sect.

"Amid the multitude of bestselling books by atheists and apologists preaching to their respective choirs, here finally is an answer to prayer and reason: a brainy, compassionate, divinely witty novel.... [It] sports so many spot-on episodes of cerebral pomposity that you've got to place this novel among the very funniest ever written. Goldstein doesn't want to shake your faith or confirm it, but she'll make you a believer in the power of fiction."—Washington Post Book World
