Die Geschichte Marias, wie sie die Bibel nicht erzählt: Lange Jahre, nachdem Christus am Kreuz gestorben ist, will die Mutter Jesu von der Heiligkeit ihres Sohnes noch immer nichts wissen. Seinen Wundern gegenüber ist sie skeptisch und den Schmerz über seinen Verlust hat sie nie überwunden. Dann erzählt sie ihre eigene Version von der Passion Christi – von ihrer ganz persönlichen Trauer, ihrer fehlenden Frömmigkeit und ihrem Eigensinn. Es ist die Geschichte einer Frau, die nicht verstehen will, weshalb ihr Sohn sich von ihr abwandte, und die auch nicht an den christlichen Gott glaubt. Durch ihre Augen eröffnet Colm Tóibín einen völlig neuen Blick auf das Christentum und erschafft ein ungeahnt menschliches Porträt der Ikone Maria.

On August 12, 1952, Russia's greatest Jewish writers were secretly executed by Stalin. In this remarkable blend of history and imagination, Paltiel Kossover meets the same fate but, unlike his real-life counterparts, he is permitted to leave a written testament. From a Jewish boyhood in pre-revolutionary Russia, Paltiel traveled down a road that embraced Communism, only to return to Russia and discover a Communist Party that had become his mortal enemy. Two decades later, Paltiel's son, Grisha, reads this precious record of his father's life and finds that it illuminates the shadowed planes of his own. Passionate and fierce, this story of a father's legacy to his son revisits some of the most dramatic events of our century, and confirms yet again Elie Wiesel's stature as "a writer of the highest moral imagination" (San Francisco Chronicle).
