Retelling the Christian origin story, Saterstrom writes, “Night took the faces of this man and woman and peeled them off like a question formed inside a fetal darknesss mouth. There, they saw a blood scene. And when finally underwater, the woman mouthed back, I do. The snake said, Do you want some of this fruit from this terrific tree? She did” (165).
