Wonderfully conversational and often very funny, this book joins you in wondering:·How can a good God create a world that has evil and suffering?·Is God anti-sex?·Doesn't science make God obsolete?·What's the real story on miracles?·If God is everywhere, why go to church?·Don't we already have God within us?·Isn't God too busy running the universe to care about the details of my day?·What does the Bible say about things like UFOs, ESP, and the afterlife-and what about Bigfoot?These questions (and many more like them) get straight answers that don't hide behind dull and confusing theological language. So get the lowdown on the big questions everyone asks-but please try not to laugh (because it's a very serious topic).From the Trade Paperback edition.

Willy Muller is an embittered writer of celebrity bios and an equal-opportunity misanthropist. At the age of fifty, he has survived imprisonment for murdering his wife, years of venomous hate mail from the British public and, most recently, the suicide of his daughter Sadie. Willy needs a rest, but he's not going to get it. While recuperating from a heart attack in a Mexican resort with his magnificently silly girlfriend Penny and his vodka-drenched friend Harry, Willy finds himself drawn into a troubling confrontation with his past. He should be working on the screen adaptation of his infamous hack memoir, To Have and to Hold, but instead he becomes engrossed in Sadie's tragic diaries. Reluctantly, he considers his chaotic family history and the notion that "only when you die do you run out of chances to be good." Set in Mexico, Los Angeles and London, Everything You Know is a story of love and loathing, sex and death, and filial relations gone horribly awry. Acidly funny and deeply affecting, it marks the debut of a brilliant and immensely stylish young writer.From the Hardcover edition.

A highly illustrated, beautifully designed tribute to ping pong, the world's most popular yet least appreciated sport-with tales from the table by Nick Hornby, Will Shortz, Davy Rothbart, Harold Evans, Jonathan Safran Foer, and others. Every sport claims to be the world's game-soccer, basketball, kabaddi. But none can match the global status acquired by modest, ubiquitous ping pong-the most popular yet misunderstood pastime in the world today, a sleeping giant of fast-paced fun. Join us on a journey into the dark corners and distant alleys of this ponging globe, from suburban basements of misspent youths to Bangkok backrooms to New Jersey rec rooms to Beijing stadia to dwarf child champions to elderly enthusiasts to Hollywood hipsters to perky porn stars. This cast of thousands, combined with artifacts from the authors' ever-growing collection of ping pongalia, reveals the hidden truths of the world behind the game: the secrets of eternal youth, guerrilla warfare, foolproof seduction, fame and adulation-all explained through two paddles, sixty inches of net, and a bouncing, bouncing ball. A world where everything you know is pong.
