The Book of Strange New Things
London: Hogarth, 2014.
Michel Faber has had considerable success imagining himself into the minds of very different groups, from carniverous aliens, in Under The Skin to Victorian prostitutes in The Crimson Petal and The White, both remarkable novels.
Now, he imagines a new marvel; a missionary spreading the Gospel on another planet, whose lifeforms unexpectedly love the message.
An unconventional fantasy from an author who triumphs in writing about bizarre situations in a matter-of-fact way.
Hardcover with jacket and gilded edges to resemble a Bible.
