Product description

What if God were a feckless teenage boy named Bob? You can't leave Bob to run the planet on his own. ''He is God.' 'He's not much of a God.' In the beginning, Bob created the heaven and the earth and the beasts of the field and the creatures of the sea, and twenty-five million other species (including lots of fanciable girls). But mostly he prefers eating junk food and leaving his dirty clothes in a mouldering heap at the side of his bed. When Bob plays with mortals, millions die. And every time he falls in love, earth erupts in natural disasters. So humankind is going to be very sorry indeed he ever ran into a beautiful, completely irresistible girl called Lucy...

Review quote

Praise for The Bride's Farewell: Masterful describes the whole of this narrative. Rosoff not only knows how to tell a tale, she is unashamed of telling it. Write Away Praise for What I Was: Already a classic. The Sunday Times Praise for What I Was: a book which will completely startle you in an awesomely crazy way with an utterly amazing flair.
