“Holt has a religious temperament, if not a religion, and he thinks the notion of God is a possible explanation of the mystery of being rather than the reverse or the refusal of one…[He] is an expert juggler of the paradoxes that go with so many kinds of negation…the fun of his quest has to do not only with what he wants to know but with his eagerness for live dialogue.”
—Michael Wood, London Review of Books on Jim Holt’s Why Does the World Exist: An Existential Detective Story
