Christos Tsiolkas

Paperback $32.99 - Allen & Unwin
Fiction - Published: 28/Oct/2019 - ISBN: 9781760875091

Christos Tsiolkas' novel takes as its subject the events surrounding the birth and establishment of the Christian church. Based around the gospels and letters of St Paul, Damascus explores the themes that have inhabited Tsiolkas as a writer: class, religion, masculinity, patriarchy, colonisation, exile; the ways in which nations, societies, communities, families and individuals are united and divided. A powerful and unflinching dissection of doubt and faith, tyranny and revolution, and cruelty and sacrifice.
