Meet the author of the novel that has taken WORD by storm! As you know, every once in awhile our entire store gets way too excited about a new book; this spring, we are all completely obsessed with Kunzru and Gods Without Men, and cannot wait to share our obsession with you. It asks all the big questions -- Are we alone in the universe? Does life have meaning? What are we all doing with our lives, anyway? -- while also providing characters that range from sympathetic to hateful, a plot that is stuffed with action, drama, and humor, and some of the best writing we've had the pleasure to read. Co-sponsored by The Millions -- special interview coming soon! Facebook RSVP appreciated.
In the desert, you see, there is everything and nothing . . . It is God without men.
—Honoré de Balzac, Une passion dans le désert, 1830
