The reporter's assignment: a documentary series on a mass shooter's victims. His favorite theologian: Nicolas Malebranche, a 17th-century French monk in search of Divine Logic who proposed some very modern ideas.

Wickedly funny and supremely erudite, Slavitt's novel plumbs the depths of media-soaked, trauma-obsessed, game-show-loving America, bringing one heretical extreme to bear on another.

Where is God in your average mall shooting? What's left to believe in once everything's been taken? And why is the office moron always the next to get promoted...?
