Heard the one about the dyslexic atheist who walks back and forth in front of a church with a big sign saying, “There is No Dog”? Meg Rosoff tells us about the title of her new book and what it’s all about!

What if God were a feckless teenage boy named Bob?

You can’t leave Bob to run the planet on his own.’
‘He is God.’
‘He’s not much of a God.’

In the beginning, Bob created the heaven and the earth and the beasts of the field and the creatures of the sea, and twenty-five million other species (including lots of fanciable girls).
But mostly he prefers eating junk food and leaving his dirty clothes in a mouldering heap at the side of his bed.

When Bob plays with mortals, millions die. And every time he falls in love, earth erupts in natural disasters. So humankind is going to be very sorry indeed he ever ran into a beautiful, completely irresistible girl called Lucy . . .
