Book Description

Review

The novel Tsiolkas was born to writeFinancial Times

A visceral portrait of the life of St Paul -- Rob Doyle ― Guardian

A powerful testament to spiritual yearning and the human desire to transcend the physical world.Sunday Times

A narrative of shock and awe, fear and trembling, so large in ambition it will probably be the book for which he will be best remembered... Tsiolkas has made a career of taking sanctioned narratives and flipping them to reveal a dark human underbelly... At its best, which is miraculously often, the novel is conjugated not in the simple present but in what is knows as the "prophetic perfect". ― The Weekend Australian

There are too many highlights to count in this daring, shocking, speculative work of biblical fiction by one of Australia's highest-profile authors. Captivating... The Herald Sun

One of the most significant contemporary storytellers at work todayColm Tóibín

A vivid novel... an insightful and sympathetic portrait of a man assailed by doubts, envy and pride, and tormented by his own homosexuality. Both insider and outsider, Tsiolkas writes with enormous respect and admiration for Christianity's message of love and equality, while recognizing all the flaws that Christianity, like any religion, is subject to - intolerance, populism and fundamentalism, and grubby worldliness. ― Selina O'Grady

An enormously ambitious novel... Tsiolkas' message is ultimately one of hope and humanity... This is a brave, unflinching book. ― The Listner

Hyper real. I could taste the salt of Saul's sweat as I gasped and cried my way through the book... This latest release confirms his ability to identify and describe both the best and the worst of us humans, whether we wear sandals or sneakers. ― The Age

Startling... Moving and powerful... ABC --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
