'We yearned to witness the Great Confrontation in reality. How would the Master of Infinite Patience cope with Father?'Father could never be called an easy man. Lazy, dishevelled, intensely malodorous and volcanic of temper, he was as unlikely to accept contradiction as to take a bath. Even after the supernatural incident on the road near Bwlch Nant-yr-Arian when a dying cow urged him to repent, his religious convictions were as wilfully eccentric as everything else about him. So his children watched in eager anticipation as well as rapt wonderment when, on the day of Father's funeral, his meeting with his maker appeared to be being relayed to them on the screen of their uncle's television. They were not to be disappointed. Even in the face of the Almighty, Father remained as eruditely argumentative as ever.The Day God Met Father is the first of three subtly interlinked stories in which the author addresses the mysteries of creation with insight, intellect and rich humour. The complexities of relativity are explored through a series of fantastical happenings in which artists can tumble into the worlds of their own paintings, angels can materialise in village schools and imaginary shops, and donkeys can be downloaded into the art schools of the distant future. Whether you read these fables for their illumination of theoretical physics, for their bracing blend of vivid evocation and bizarre invention, or just as thumping good yarns, you will find this collection of stories unforgettable.
