Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

God's body has self-destructed and His skull is now in orbit directly above Times Square, prompting a plague of "death awareness" across the Western hemisphere. The United States begins to resemble fourteenth-century Europe during the Black Death—with some unique twenty-first-century twists—a bloody battle on a New Jersey golf course between Jews and anti-Semites; a modern theater troupe's stirring dramatization of the Gilgamesh epic; a post-death debate between Martin Luther and Erasmus; and the most chilling capitalist villain ever, Dr. Adrian Lucido, founder of a new pagan church and inventor of a cure worse than any disease. Two people fight to preserve life and sanity, Nora Burkhart, a schoolteacher who will stop at nothing to save her only son, and Gerard Korty, a brilliant sculptor struggling to create a masterwork that will heal the metaphysical wounds caused by God's abdication. The Eternal Footman brilliantly completes James Morrow's satiric trilogy begun with the World Fantasy Award-winning Towing Jehovah and continued in Blameless in Abaddon.

Synopsis:

Can civilization survive the death of God? It's up in the air in this third book of Morrow's darkly comic trilogy begun in the award-winning "Towing Jehovah" and continued in "Blameless in Abaddon". "Brilliantly wraps up one of the wildest series ever written".--"The Denver Post".

Synopsis:

A third and final volume in a black comedy about the death of God finds God's skull orbiting the Earth creating apocalyptic chaos as schoolteacher Nora Burkhart and brilliant sculptor Gerard Korty struggle to preserve humanity. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
