{{start|''On God: An Uncommon Conversation'' by Norman Mailer with Michael Lennon}} is a true gem. It comes out appropriately at the end of Mailer’s life and reveals a lifetime’s rumination over why we are here, what or who directs us, and where we may go when it’s all over on earth. It is a ''Moby Dick''-like quest for God, only mercifully shorter than of Melville’s version of Ahab’s looking for the whale.
