The Childhood of Jesus

Available

Description

From the double Booker Prize-winning author of Disgrace , 'a moving story of lost childhood' ( Sunday Telegraph ).

After crossing oceans, a man and a boy - both strangers to each other - arrive in a new land. David, the boy, has lost his mother and Simon vows to look after him. In this strange country they are each assigned a new name, a new birthday, a new life.

Knowing nothing of their surroundings, nor the language or customs, they are determined to find David's mother. Though the boy has no memory of her, Simon is certain he will recognise her at first sight. 'But after we find her,' David asks, 'what are we here for?'

The Childhood of Jesus is a profound, beautiful and continually surprising novel from a very great writer.

'Powerful and poetic... This book will continue to act, silently and unexpectedly, on the reader's imagination' Financial Times
