Gods Without Men
Ambitious, far-reaching and dizzying in scope, Gods Without Men is Hari Kunzru's most deeply engaging, compelling novel to date
Centring around the mysterious disappearance of a young boy in the Californian desert, Gods Without Men interweaves the stories of the boy and his parents, a British rock star on the run from LA, the members of a UFO-inspired cult and the residents of the place where all these stories converge - a tumbleweed desert town in the shadow of a rock formation called The Pinnacles.
As emotionally gripping as it is imaginatively and intellectually engaging, Gods Without Men is a compulsively readable journey into the twists and turns of a handful of human lives, and a heartfelt exploration of the universal search for order, pattern and meaning in a random and chaotic universe.
