He's a supermarket trolly, and he believes in God.
In the church next door he meets Edgar Malroy, soon to be the richest man in the world.
Edgar runs a betting shop that only takes bets on metaphysical propositions and consequently he never has to pay out.
But Edgar has a tragic flaw: he's in love with Sophia Alderson, who, in addition to being ridiculously beautiful, thinks she's a messenger from God...
Scepticicm Inc is a sublime satire on the lunacies of organised religion, a heartbreaking story of a doomed love and a novel boiling over with inventiveness and crazy humour.
