Is Anybody Up There? Adventures of a Devout Sceptic Summary


Is Anybody Up There? Adventures of a Devout Sceptic by Paul Arnott

When he was little Paul Arnott believed in fairies, Father Christmas and Baby Jesus. But as he got older he found things weren't so simple. Whether recalling encounters with hardcore Christians speaking in tongues or being taught Orthodox paradoxes by a beautiful Greek tour guide, seeking serenity with the Dalai Lama or being stoned by Palestinians in the Holy Land, Arnott is an entertaining guide through the half-beliefs and fully-fledged convictions of himself and others. With one friend vanishing into the Moonies and another emerging from a decade in an ashram to head up the Hari Krishnas' international flapjack corporation, what seems clear to Arnott is that to deny our spiritual side is to deny our history, our humanity and, crucially, a great deal of our humour. IS ANYBODY UP THERE? is an open-minded and insightful look into what we believe and why we believe it.

Is Anybody Up There? Adventures of a Devout Sceptic Reviews


Praise for -- LET ME EAT CAKE 'This is a lovely book - Arnott has written a story that is by turns thoughtful and comforting, and nostalgic as hell.' -- William Leith, Guardian 'Arnott is adept at telling wonderful stories, but it's his warm, affectionate take on growing up, and out, that makes this such a lovely book...I was won over by the sweetness of it all.' -- Independent on Sunday 'A nostalgic sugarfest. Arnott writes extremely well, icing his prose with subtle, ironic humour...A light, funny, informative, highly enjoyable confection that offers much instant gratification. Enjoy' -- Daily Mail 'If T.S.Eliot's life was measured out in coffee spoons, Paul Arnott's has been punctuated by bars of dairy milk chocolate and Mr Kipling's exceedingly calorific cakes. His sweet, funny, sugar-coated memoir is light as a fairy cake.' -- The Times 'A wonderful, multifaceted voyage of discovery book...moving and often hilarious' -- Literary Review on A Good Likeness 'A gripping, analytical journey' -- The List on A Good Likeness
