From the international best-selling author of The Slap (long-listed for the Man Booker) and Barracuda, Christos Tsiolkas, comes a stunning new novel. Damascus is a work of immense power and epic scope, taking as its subject nothing less than 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 obsessed Tsiolkas as a writer: class, religion, masculinity, patriarchy, colonisation and refugees. It is a novel of immense power and an unflinching dissection of doubt, faith, cruelty and sacrifice.
