Shaw's "Black Girl"

by Edd Doerr

Looking for a fun read? May I suggest George Bernard Shaw's 1932 novella The Adventures of the Black Girl in Her Search for God. It is an amusing amble through the thorny thickets of theology, the rocky realms of regressive religion, the pubescent pits of piety, a meander through the misty miasmas of myopic misogyny and moronic misanthropy, a flit through the fog-forests and fetid fields of falwellian fantasy, a puncturing of pompous pontificating and puffy popery  Try it, You'll like it.
