All you have to do to become somebody's God is disappear. The speaker is Mayan Atassi, the wise and frighteningly vulnerable heroine who captivated readers of Mona Simpson's Anywhere But Here and who now narrates the novel's immensely powerful successor. Mayan's god is her father, who left her when she was a child. Up until now she has worshiped him by waiting for him to come back. But at the age of 28 Mayan sets out to find him. Her quest is an epic, wrenching search that leads her across two continents to the high edge of madness. It leads the reader to a poignant understanding of the nature of love and lovelessness, fathers and fatherlessness, and of the loyalties that make us who we are - even when they threaten to destroy us.

    " 3.75. I liked the book, but worry she's just got the one story/theme. "

    " The writing was beautiful, but I found the character whiney and negative. The story dragged on and I wanted to give the character a whack across the face and say, "Get over it! Move on!" While it was effective at expressing obsession, it was unpleasant to read. "

    " This book frustrated me. It's about a woman's quest to find her father but she went on and on ad nauseum and after 250 pages of reading the same things over and over again I gave up. Life is too short.... "

    " It was a bit long winded, could have been shorter. The last third of the book was the best. "
