God is an Atheist is a profoundly funny romp through religion, spirituality, and the contemporary clash beliefs, with special attention to the human obsession with knowing what can’t be known. Nosirrah provokes just about everyone as he describes a world where God is on the run from Islamic extremists, the Pope announces he shares a bed with Richard Dawkins, and Buddha’s son disappoints by getting enlightened instead of becoming a doctor.
“To say this novella is strange might give the reader a way to relate to it, but in fact, nothing will shift the burden away from the reader. In its pages, the world is bent around the reader’s mind until either the mind itself begins to bend, or indeed, breaks. A book without plot, characters, structure, or obvious purpose, this is an endless descent into the netherworlds of a dystopian mind. If a thousand monkeys typing endlessly would eventually produce all great works of literature, then God Is an Atheist is their first draft.”

“God is an Atheist is a quick yet provocative read—although whether it provokes thought, anger, or mere annoyance will depend on the reader. Nosirrah is either irresistibly engaging or in dire need of Ritalin. But his whirling dervish style is distinctive and smart. He offers much to think about and much to laugh about, too.”

In this freewheeling, very funny story of Sixties excess, mad genius, enlightened rambling, death and transfiguration, no metaphysical or cultural holds are barred.
In this remarkable spiritual memoir, N. Nosirrah takes us through the arc of his life from his birth, which he claims never actually happened, to his death, amazingly described by Nosirrah himself.
