¶ A curious novel. The purported memoirs of a man who travels to Malaysia, Borneo, Egypt, Nepal & California, and sets himself up as a god in each of these places. A sort of pre-Vonnegut philosophy, pretty much completely unknown due to the rarity of the book. "I invented the god racket and I have no imitators"
