Dios, entre otros inconvenientes

God, Among Other Nuisances | Anagrama, 1996

With penetrating irony and a harsh sense of humour, this collection of essays explores the means by which human beings have tried to elucidate the enigma of existence.

God plays a central role but also all critical doctrines that follow. Rubert de Ventós speaks from a position where ideas can still be perceived in all their richness, where words do not cast a shadow over meaning nor try to embody 20th Century Lesser Gods: ideology, semiology, subversion, deconstruction and other vestigial remains.

With his usual playful intelligence, youthful wit and sound reasoning, Rubert de Ventós draws the curious reader in and forces him to question established views on globalization, political correctness, the notion of God, cloning, smoking and food as a new religion. A real pleasure.
