    DescriptionA flawlessly presented tale that opens a window on human aspiration and folly, its revelations full of grit and glory. -- starred, "Kirkus Reviews" A superbly crafted combination of historical and inspirational fiction that is genuinely unique. -- starred, "Publishers Weekly" This is no simple retelling of an ancient story, but a modern and startling account of the birth and death of faith. In Crace's hands, Jesus is reconceived as Gally, a boy besotted with prayer and visions. "Quarantine" is the extraordinary re-imagining of the forty days Jesus Christ spent in the wilderness being tempted by the devil. Short-listed for the Booker Prize, this is a novel that you ll never forget.

    Review quote
    "Remarkable . . . The effect is almost hallucinatory."--Frank Kermode, "The New York Times Book Review" "Stunning . . . extraordinary . . . One of the freshest and most inventive novelistic uses of biblical material I have read."--"Minneapolis Star Tribune" "A spiritual mystery of the best kind . . . Crace is a master at creating a convincing landscape out of evocative, earthy details . . . The creation of an ambitious imagination . . . A literary miracle."--"USA Today" "A superb book . . . It succeeds thanks to Crace's potent, imaginative rendering of the characters and the setting, and because of its distinctive, lilting language."--"Time Out New York" "Immensely impressive . . . This novel is a high-wire act, a tour de force, a garment expertly tailored from materials of the highest quality."--Bruce Bawer, "The Washington Post Book World"
