God‘s Wife is a stunningly brilliant book. It is a moving love story that unfolds with the rigorous intellectual logic of a piece of first-rate theology. Highly recommended.

– Simon Critchley, author of The Book of Dead Philosophers

A beautiful and haunting portrait of a marriage that scrambled my thoughts on faith, power, love and sacrifice. A gorgeous, important book.

– Jac Jemc, author of The Grip of It and False Bingo

God’s Wife is an allegorical work that speaks to these troubling times with an unusual voice, with wit and intelligence.

– Lynne Tillman, author of Men and Apparitions

A brilliant exploration of time and being and the existential wonders and terrors of repetition. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

– Laird Hunt, author of In the House in the Dark of the Woods
