It appears as though a gentlemen by the name of Louie Lawent would like me to promote his new book "The Louie/God Interviews (What The Big Fella Really Thinks About Man and The Universe)." Certainly, I would be happy to do so! It looks like it has potential to be quite a page turner with the elements of comedy it contains. I like the concept and I'm happy to give Mr. Lawent the boost he's looking for here at Blog of Bryan. He's most certainly an invite to the members only Blog of Bryan that will be running effective this Monday. Here is the email that Mr. Lawent sent me as well as a summary regarding his new book:
My name is Louie Lawent. I am hoping you can give me a big boost. I'd
be very appreciative if you would make mention of my fun new book "The Louie/God Interviews (What The Big Fella Really Thinks About Man And The Universe)" on your blog. Or perhaps, you'd like to conduct an e-mail interview with
me. Alas, just with me, not The Big Guy too. Since this book lends itself to absurd questions, I think it could be an entertaining interview adventure for both of us. Below is a description of the book and a little more info about me below that. Thank you for your consideration and feel free to ask me any questions that you may have.
Are the days of "God speaks to Man" a relic of the past? Not according to Louie Lawent, who at the turn of the new millennium landed a series of exclusive interviews with The Supreme Being. Louie grills God about his checkered career, but it's done benignly and a frustrated Creator makes a good case for himself - well, most of the time. The interviews cover biblical happenings, His propensity to smite, evolution, pop culture, and a God who believes He's the victim of a disinformation campaign. It's "The Far Side" meets "The Thinker" meets the "Frat Boy." A God who considered creation "a good day in the hood."
What Hollywood director would God choose to direct his life story? What part do the Three Stooges play in the Rapture? What about his pet peeves? How do Americans amaze God? What's his favorite political joke? Did the aliens really land at Roswell? A God not exactly enamored by the human race.
Louie: What is your real opinion of people?
God: They're like radio songs that are fine for the car ride home, but you'd never purchase them to be part of your master collection.
Louie: Do you have a guidebook to help make your decisions on JudgmentDay?God: The Starr Report is any good God's starting point.
God remarks, "I don't think I could be elected God. I'd lose to some would-be savior who said, 'Read my lips - No more sense of shame.' We have occasional pep rallies in heaven. While years ago they sang rousing psalms of 'God for eternity' now I get a qualified endorsement of '4 more years, 4 more years.'"
If you'd like, I can e-mail you more snippets from the book.
