The Word of God given an A- in Entertainment Weekly

I like this one:

The late author's newest work, presented as a memoir by a deified Disch, satirizes modern religion via fiction and poetry. Movie pitch: Bruce Almighty as a pitch-dark Charlie Kaufman dramedy. Bottom line: While Disch's frequent references to suffering and the afterlife can be painful to read after his recent suicide, they make for a fitting coda to a career spent perfecting the art of the unsettling. A-.
