From the back: 'Creating Man begins where the creation myth leaves off-with the eighth day, when God, through the intervention of the archangel Michael, invents human emotion. As each new feeling is brought forth, the novel dissolves into a depiction of that emotion, manifested through the relationship of two gay men. We experience hate through the guise of an abusive relationship; guilt with a gay father and son; fear through an athlete publicly outed; pride through the actions of the perfect golden boy. Yet while each relationship is devastated by emotion, each story concludes with the resolution of that emotion, leading to a final episode that is as dramatically intense as it is intellectually stimulating. Creating Man is a novel with much to say about men, love, sex, religion, and spirituality, filled with everyday characters and angels on high. It is a novel that confirms that it is only through love-love of ourselves and of each other-that we can truly exist, as both creations of the divine and within the confines of our own sacred communities.Was this review helpful?
