Joshua Ferris discusses his new novel, To Rise Again at a Decent Hour. It’s about Paul O'Rourke, a dentist made of contradictions: he loves the world, but doesn't know how to live in it and he’s an atheist not quite willing to let go of God. When someone begins to impersonate Paul online, and he watches in horror as a website, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account are created in his name, he realizes that the online "Paul" might be a better version of the real thing.

Leonard: "You made that up?" Ferris: "I made that up."

What kind of ridiculous discourse is this? Ferris made up the whole book. All are is made up. Not only that, all RELIGIONS ARE MADE UP. Nothing being discussed in this conversation is not made up.

Why is Ferris equating Atheism with a lack of connectedness? We atheists are very connected to rational people!
