Damascus description

“The world is in darkness”.

So begins Christos Tsiolkas’ extraordinary new novel Damascus, a fictional account of the chaotic years after the crucifixion of Jesus, when Saul becomes Paul, vicious persecutor becomes passionate proselytiser, and in oppression is born a cult of belief that becomes one of the world’s most powerful religions. Linking Christos’ remarkable yet disparate body of work is the ambition, bold vision and uncompromising muscularity of his writing, all powerfully present in the visceral, vivid world of Damascus.
