"My parents left the country with no provision for me and told me they stole me at birth. I know not what to do," Sigmund said. "Who am I?"
"You're Sigmund," Edward said. "That's all that matters."

Thought Provoking Book
God Went Fishing tells the remarkable story of Sigmund, a handsome and kind young man who led an idyllic life until learning the woman he thought to be his mother had stolen him from the hospital where she'd just given birth, leaving her own child behind. This satirical novel follows Sigmund's adventures and catastrophes as he searches for his true identity.
While enjoying this cross between Candide and "Family Guy," readers see that a life filled with death, despair, and deceit can be fun. Perhaps the real reason Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden was because it was boring. God Went Fishing is often offensive, sometimes poignant, occasionally edifying--and always funny. Readers will long remember the characters Sigmund encounters during his quest.
