Overview

Quarantine: A Novel by Jim Crace

Jim Crace's novel is the brilliantly imagined story of Christ's forty days in the wilderness, a tale of three men, two women, and a curious wanderer whose peculiar fate is transformed into legend. Dazzling, gritty, and utterly compelling, Quarantine is a work at once timeless and timely - a parable for the ages.

Goes against all learned and preconcieved ideas of how Christ could have touched the lives of people other than those told of in bibles. Excellent descriptive writing talent.
