THE BRAND NEW TES­TA­MENT

Bel­gian fab­u­list Jaco Van Dor­mael’s warm, cheeky and in­ven­tive satire proves Monty Python don’t hold a pa­tent on God- coms. With Benoît Poelvo­orde’s God pre­sented as a mean- spir­ited grouch, his daugh­ter vis­its Earth and gath­ers fresh apos­tles for a brighter Tes­ta­ment.

Mad­cap wit, in­ven­tion and all- em­brac­ing com­pas­sion com­pen­sate for sketchy plot­ting; even the de­vout, surely, will warm to Dor­mael’s win­ning gospel. Kevin Har­ley

Get­ting stuck in a tube: wor­ry­ing.
