Summary :

A collection of linked short stories, written with an end to the narrative as a whole.
It's a hilariously revisionist account of Noah's Ark, narrated by a passenger who doesn't appear in Genesis. It's a sneak preview of heaven. It encompasses the stories of a cruise ship hijacked by terrorists and of woodworms tried for blasphemy in sixteenth-century France. It explores the relationship of fact to fabulation and the antagonism between history and love.
