In this article, the writer notes that in Jonathan Lethem's science fiction novel 'Girl in Landscape', one of the more intriguing characters one meets throughout the course of the book is Efram Nugent. From his very first mention shortly after the Marsh family's arrival on the Planet of the Archbuilders, Efram assumes a mysterious though powerful role. In this essay, the writer argues that Efram Nugent occupies a God-like position in the order of things on the Planet of the Archbuilders. The writer shows how Efram's telepathic abilities to see everything that goes on through the household deer effectively positions him in the classic theological role that is traditionally associated with a higher power.

Sample of Sources Used:

  • Lethem, Jonathan. Girl in Landscape. New York: Doubleday, 1998.
