The Waterproof BibleBook - 2010
A magical story of love and the isolation that defines the modern condition - Andrew Kaufman pulls off the near impossible and creates a wholly original allegorical tale that is both emotionally resonant and outlandishly fun. The Waterproof Bible Three events force Rebecca to change her ways: the unannounced departure of her husband, Stewart; the sudden death of her musician sister, Lisa; and a near-crash with what appears to be a giant frogwoman. The giant, green-skinned, gill-necked woman is named Aberystwyth (Aby), and she's driving to the Prairies on a mission to save her dying mother. Meanwhile, Rebecca's grieving brother-in-law, Lewis, feeling lost, ends up getting off a plane in Winnipeg, which sets him on a fascinating journey through the darkest parts of grief with the help of a woman who calls herself God.
