"Tells of a young man frustrated by the inability of his two chosen courses of study, biology and literature, to adequately define the world.

This journey leads him to a deserted island off the coast of Ireland and, perhaps, to the mythical Garden of the Hesperides, home of the Tree of Life." -- Back cover

"Hafiz is a twenty-five-year-old Muslim doing post-graduate work in genetics at the University of Beirut.

She looks for a way out to a future." "Maurice Rotblatt is a middle-aged ex-television-guru who comes to the Middle East and calls for a plague on all ethnic and religious belligerants. He then disappears. His friends in England wonder - is he a victim? A trickster? Or has he left hints about some hope for a future?" "The story ends in September 2001. It is by the capacity to understand the interweaving actions and aspirations of many different characters - in Lebanon, Israel, Turkey, England - that there might be a chance, it seems, for humans to be nudged out of their self-destructive genetic and environmental conditioning."--Jacket

"God is said to have given humans freedom. Yet in the story of Genesis, God is a punishing father figure. Why have humans portrayed him this way?

Adam writes an account of this, and the story of his own child, Sophie, and his relationship with her. The scene moves from London to New York to Israel to Iran and Iraq. And might not God as well as Adam have a wife to take up the cause if things go wrong?"--BOOK JACKET
