Description
Dissatisfied with the teachings of white missionaries, an African girl embarks upon her own quest for God and Truth, in this 1932 novel by the Nobel Prize–winning author of Pygmalion and Arms and the Man. Journeying through the forest, the girl encounters a vengeful Old Testament version of the deity; a Jesus who poses as an artists' model; Mohammed; an atheist behaviorist; and a team of mathematicians, all seeking to convert her to their own brand of faith. Highly controversial in its day for both its religious skepticism and its endorsement of intermarriage, George Bernard Shaw's brilliantly sardonic allegory appears here with John Farleigh's 16 stylish woodcuts from the original edition, as well as a foreword by the author of The Testament of Mary.
