About the book:

In this comic yet poignant novel, God emerges from primal chaos, creates the cosmos, then realizes that His creation is monstrously flawed. As he agonizes over the limitations of human intelligence, He realizes that He's lost control over the earth's destiny. Although He encounters many heroes of the human spirit including Moses, Buddha, Thomas Aquinas, Galileo, and Mozart, He is ultimately frustrated that no one sees that self-understanding offers the only path by which mankind can save the world. Defeated, God retreats to the borders of the universe to "rest in the late ripeness of my years," reflecting as much Franco Ferruci's disappointment in humankind as His own.
