Аннотация

';I see God,' wrote Norman Mailer, ';as a Creator, as the greatest artist. I see human beings as His most developed artworks.' In these moving, amusing, and probing dialogues conducted in the years before his death, Mailer establishes his own system of belief, rejecting both organized religion and atheism. He avows that sensual pleasures were bestowed on us by God; he finds fault with the Ten Commandments; and he holds that technology was the Devil's most brilliant creation. In short, Mailer is original and unpredictable in this inspiring journey, in which ';God needs us as much as we need God.' Praise for On God ';[Norman Mailer's] theology is not theoretical to him. After eight decades, it is what he believes. He expects no adherents, and does not profess to be a prophet, but he has worked to forge his beliefs into a coherent catechism.'New York ';The glory of an original mind in full provocation.'USA Today ';At once illuminating and exciting . . . a chance to see Mailer's intellect as well as his lively conversational style of speech.'American Jewish Life ';Remarkable . . . [Mailer's] a believerin his own fashion. . . . He has made [God] into a complex character.'The Globe and Mail Praise for Norman Mailer ';[Norman Mailer] loomed over American letters longer and larger than any other writer of his generation.'The New York Times ';A writer of the greatest and most reckless talent.'The New Yorker ';Mailer is indispensable, an American treasure.'The Washington Post ';A devastatingly alive and original creative mind.'Life ';Mailer is fierce, courageous, and reckless and nearly everything he writes has sections of headlong brilliance.'The New York Review of Books ';The largest mind and imagination [in modern] American literature . . . Unlike just about every American writer since Henry James, Mailer has managed to grow and become richer in wisdom with each new book.'Chicago Tribune ';Mailer is a master of his craft. His language carries you through the story like a leaf on a stream.'The Cincinnati PostFrom the Hardcover edition.
