Product description

Review

The rare thing that Goldstein does to excellent effect is to sustain her discourse - her arguments and her puns and her jokes and her descriptions and her comparisons and contrasts...are ffervescent and knowing... [36 Arguments for the Existence of God] is, in fact, a lovely dream. --Jane Smiley, Los Angeles Times

Dazzling, sparked by frequent flashes of nonchalant brilliance... Affirms Ms. Goldstein's position as a satirist and a seeker of real moral questions at a time when silly ones prevail. -- Janet Maslin, New York Times

In her cerebral fiction [Goldstein] dances across disciplines with delight... 36 Arguments radiates all the humour and erudition we've come to expect from Goldstein... Hilarious... You've got to place this novel among the very funniest [novel] 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

[An] engaging cocktail of philosophy, roman à clef fun, and scholarly soap opera... Goldstein's novel doubles as a genuine primer on current debates about science and religion... --Globe and Mail

A freewheeling satirical tale that is compelling, heady, and laced with a deliciously dark wit... Caustically irreverent, yet provocative and informative without being completely didactic. And somewhat surprisingly, by the end, it is also deeply touching.
--Boston Globe

'Rebecca Goldstein is a rare find among contemporary novelists: she has intellectual muscle as well as a tender emotional reach.' --IAN McEWAN

Review

'A hilarious novel about people's existential agonies, a page-turner about the intellectual mysteries that obsess them. The characters in 36 Arguments for the Existence of God explore the great moral issues of our day in a novel that is deeply moving and a joy to read.' Jonathan Safran Foer 'Brilliant' Christopher Hitchens 'When a writer is as clever as Goldstein, it does not seem fair that she should also write with charm, humour and emotional acuity - [An] ingenious and heart-warming novel - One of the literary hits of the year.' Mail on Sunday 'Rebecca Goldstein - looks like Rapunzel but thinks like Wittgenstein - 36 Arguments for the Existence of God is a vast rambling fiction - that is frighteningly impressive - To read her is to take a crash course in post-theological debate but also to lose yourself in a cast of dazzlingly bright characters.' The Times 'Hilariously irreverent' Financial Times 'A feast of ideas' TLS
