Gods Without Men

by Hari Kunzru - £8.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141020211 | ISBN 10: 0141020210

2008. The California desert. A four-year-old boy disappears in the wilderness and his parents find themselves at the centre of a media witch-hunt. A British rock star hides out at a run-down motel. A teenage Iraqi refugee lives a surreal life as a role-player in a military simulation.
 
The present is connected to the past. The earth is connected to the sky. These stories connect with others - an eighteenth-century Franciscan explorer; a Mormon miner who can hear the silver singing in the rocks; a guilt-ridden aircraft engineer trying to contact Venus. Behind them all is Coyote, the trickster, who subverts the laws of Gods and men.
 
A compulsively readable journey into the twists and turns of a handful of human lives, Gods Without Men is also a heartfelt exploration of our search for pattern and meaning in a random and chaotic universe.
