S.G. Browne on Fated and Greek Gods

S.G. Browne is rapidly becoming known for his ability to take the familiar and re-imagine it through the kinds of humor and satire that also allows for interesting characters. His latest is Fated, which Kirkus in a starred review calls "Another radically funny comedy from one of America's best satiric novelists."

What's it about? From Publishers Weekly: "Browne...unleashes the irresistible tale of Fabio Delucci, who's getting tired of his job as Fate. It's a grind, working the Fate Radar and the Fate Generator program and reporting to Jehovah--known here as Jerry--who believes Fate's work has grown sloppy. Even his no-contact romance with Destiny has become distinctly unfulfilling. Then he falls in forbidden love with human Sara Griffen, and once he reveals his true self to her, their relationship is drastically transformed, and, naturally, big consequences threaten to crush him. Fabio provides an appealing commentary on the hazards of immortality, the uncertainty of destiny, and the lengths people will go for love, all wrapped up in a cute, funny package."
