Sounds like an interesting book...too bad the NYT doesn't show the book cover in their reviews as The Washington Post does because it sounds interesting too...

I've almost finished the book, and have been greatly enjoying it. It even includes a photo from "The Wicked Bible" (as Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett called it in "Good Omens"), displaying the Commandment "Thou Shalt Commit Adultery."

Here are the dust jacket and the book spine.
