Only Human by Jenny Diski

Click to follow

Always ready to experiment, Jenny Diski takes the love story at the heart of Genesis as the inspiration of this novel, narrated alternately by a hormonal-sounding God and a new-born infant. Diski breathes new life into the story of Abraham and Sarah, a familiar story of last-minute fecundity, trust and despair. At times the anachronistic tone can be wearisome, but it's worth staying the course.
