Author(s): Anne Rice
Evokes the crucial time in the life of Christ, based on the Gospels and research. It's a child's eye view of Jewish life in these years of occupation, and the boy's growing awareness, first of his extraordinary powers, the mysteries surrounding his birth and finally of the tragedy that his coming visited on the children of others.
" 'Rice's writing is wonderfully imaginative and as creeplly splendid as a hot-house orchid' Sunday Times. 'Erotic and disturbing, Anne Rice is still the best modern Gothic novelist' The Face"
