    Paperback ¿ I, Judas eBook Ù judas epub, I, Judas ePUBJudas Iscariot tells the tale of his life as he trudges across the frozen plain of Judecca on the ninth circle of Dante's Hell towards his perpetual grinding between the teeth of Satan who stands as an impotent giant trapped waist high in the ice Judas is the ironic mirror to Christ the King of All Suicides eternally reliving the deaths of Custer Plath Sexton Van Gogh and other self murderers from the annals of history He is imprisoned within a circular universe of anachronism where Ballardian crashed aircraft louche colonial journalists in the Maugham mode the DMZ in war torn Jerusalem JFK's assassination the Roman occupation of Judea and the life and death of Jes

    Paperback ¿ I, Judas eBook Ù judas epub, I, Judas ePUBJudas Iscariot has come unstuck in time James Reich's sparky visceral debut novel begins where the Judas story as we know it ends with the continuation of Judas' descent from the tree into Hell and Judecca This underworld will be familiar to readers of Dante and Milton but is also furnished with the modern and mechanical trappings of other infamous suicides From the frozen wasteland Reich's Judas tells us how he has come to inhabit all suicides and betrayals in history and literature So the novel becomes an exploration of the strange seeming links between many celebrated figures who have taken their own lives and a literary fo

    Paperback ¿ I, Judas eBook Ù judas epub, I, Judas ePUBAs the title attests it is the story or perhaps I should say a story of Judas Iscariot But this is not does not attempt to be a history Rather it is a poetic discourse of the role of the Judas figure through time especially in relation to the Christ It is anchored in the biblical era — in fact it is anchored in biblical language — but it easily changes time periods with the assumption of the Judas role characterised by betrayal or suicide in other historical figures Some of these are familiar subjects for those acuainted with James' songs eg Jacues Rigau

    Paperback ¿ I, Judas eBook Ù judas epub, I, Judas ePUBThere's a long literary tradition of attempts to understand andor interpret Judas and this novel comes as what is to me an interesting and uniue take on the uestion The closest literary approach I can think of is Borges's Three Versions of Judas but Reich takes things further and in a interesting direction But for me what sold me on the text beyond the general notion of trying to explain Judas and flesh him out as a person is that Reich's prose can be just breathtaking The man can craft a sentence and weave those sentences into paragraphs and passages that are often beautiful He also has a knack for reeling off long lists of things that grow increasingly surreal and entertaining I

    Paperback ¿ I, Judas eBook Ù judas epub, I, Judas ePUBObviously this is a book about Judas Iscariot only if Judas was a mash of Lee Harvey Oswald Sylvia Plath Van Gogh and hundreds of others It's a disjointed puzzle that slowly rebuilds a picture of the Bible from piles of bodies It's twisted but poignant The writer James Reich works in science fiction ideas gothic horror and modern tv culture and Jesus Christ Superstar I read this book after seeing a review from Julie Powell on If you liked Live from Golgotha The Gospel According to Gore Vidal you should like this But not if you are a commited christian

    Paperback ¿ I, Judas eBook Ù judas epub, I, Judas ePUBArtsy at times confusing This book shows Judas Iscariot looking back on his life but mostly on the leading role he plays in Jesus' life according to this story Judas is ruthless erotic dramatic strict and intelligent But Jesus comes across as an easily impressed person who because of Judas and their close realtionship became who he became Although Judas helped create him he himself became the inevitable scapegoat The author illustrates this by writting about other fames scapegoats Judasses and suicidal famous figures like Vincent van Gogh This books mixes the old and the new
