ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
In una landa ai margini di tutto vivono un padre e un figlio, Rino e Cristiano Zena, uniti da un amore viscerale che si nutre di sopraffazione e violenza. Tirano avanti un'esistenza orgogliosa insieme a un paio di balordi. Un giorno decidono che è arrivato il momento di dare una svolta alle loro vite. Il piano è semplice: scassinare un bancomat. I protagonisti di questa fiaba apocalittica si ritrovano così in una notte di tempesta, affollata di fantasmi e rimorsi, in cui i fiumi straripano e il fango sembra seppellire ogni speranza. Ma dalle tenebre emerge una ragazzina bionda che sprigiona una forza oscura e finisce per cambiare per sempre i loro destini. "Come Dio comanda" è una sinfonia in cui la più cupa tragedia e lo humour più scatenato si fondono, dando vita a un grande affresco sociale.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
From the internationally best-selling author of I'm Not Scared comes a dizzying and compulsively readable novel set in a moribund town in industrial Italy, where a father and son contend with a hostile world and their own inner demons.
The economically depressed village of Varrano in the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, where Cristiano Zena lives with his hard-drinking, out-of-work father, Rino, is a world away from the picturesque towns of travel-brochure Italy. When Rino and his rough-edged cronies Danilo and Quattro Formaggi come up with a plan to reverse all their fortunes, Cristiano wonders if maybe their lives are poised for deliverance after all.  But the plan goes horribly awry. On a night of apocalyptic weather, each character will act in a way that will have irreversible consequences for themselves and others, and Cristiano will find his life changed forever, and not in the way he had hoped. Gritty and relentless, As God Commands moves at breakneck speed, blending brutal violence, dark humor, and surprising tenderness.
