The Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 2
To get us into the festival spirit here at Inpress we've been looking back at some of our favourite books from 2015. It's...
In February came two unique stories of mystery and betrayal: one told through a collection of poems and the other from one of Croatia’s best-known writers.
A shattered Judas Iscariot – that byword for betrayal – tells his own story in this compelling and finely wrought poetry collection. We follow Judas over the course of five days as he moves through first-century Jerusalem trying to make sense of the bewildering events surrounding the life and execution of Jesus. But this is a man for whom the Arab-Israeli conflict is as urgent as the tension between the Romans and Jews. Emphasising our compulsion to create, and challenge, gospel truths, Judas gives voice to man caught up in the promise and violence of history. Buy it here.
