"As I remember, I had just woken up from a nap when I decided to create the universe." So begins Alan Lightman's playful and profound new novel, Mr g, the story of Creation as narrated by God. Bored with living in the shimmering Void with his bickering Uncle Deva and Aunt Penelope, Mr g creates time, space, and matter-then moves on to stars, planets, consciousness, and finally intelligent beings with moral dilemmas.

But even the best-laid plans can go awry, and Mr g discovers that with his creation of space and time come unforeseen consequences-especially in the form of the mysterious Belhor, a clever and devious rival. As Mr g watches his favorite universe grow into maturity, he begins to understand how the act of creation can change the Creator himself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Here is the creation of the Universe and the young Creator who grapples with what he has made-and ultimately with responsibility and loss...a gem of a novel that is strange witty erudite and alive with Lightman's playful genius. -- Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
It would not seem possible for Alan Lightman to match his earlier tour de force, Einstein's Dreams, but in Mr g he has done so - with wit, imagination, and transcendent beauty. * Anita Desai *
Just as he did with his incomparable Einstein's Dreams, Alan Lightman again surprises us with a work that is utterly original in both form and content. Mr g is a philosophical fable which is at turns hilarious and moving, rendered with a literary hand so deft that the weightiest metaphysical topics levitate into pure delight. * Rebecca Newberger Goldstein *
