Overview

Alan Lightman, the internationally bestselling author of" Einstein's Dreams, " presents "Mr g, "a celebration of the highs and lows of existence, on the grandest possible scale: the story of Creation, as told by God.
Once before time existed, Mr g woke up from a nap and decided to create the universe. In the shimmering Void, where he lives with his Aunt Penelope and Uncle Deva, he creates time, space, and matter. Soon follow stars, planets, animate matter, consciousness, and intelligent beings with moral dilemmas. But the creation of space and time has unintended consequences, including the arrival of Belhor, a clever and devious rival. Belhor delights in needling Mr g, demanding explanations for the inexplicable, offering his own opinions on the fledgling universes, and maintaining the necessity of evil. As Mr g s favorite universe grows, he discovers how an act of creation can change everything in the world including the creator himself."
