Channelling the craft of Neil Gaiman, and the humour and genius of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, Kanan Gill weaves a story that will surprise readers in the best ways possible, raising the most serious of questions: What does it mean to be human?
In Kanan Gill’s wildly entertaining and moving debut novel, a Danish policeman accidentally becomes a clothing-optional leader of a worldwide group of Science Haters, a sentient piece of wall struggles with the limits of its artistic expression, and a lapel pin’s habit of always giving truthful advice causes utter chaos.
Gill puts his own spin on the long tradition of comedic science fiction, achieving a delightful alchemy of humour, imaginativeness and philosophical provocations. Blending vivid inventiveness and uproarious storytelling, with an intriguing interrogation of the very nature of existence, Acts of God marks the evolution of one of India’s finest comedic voices.
