Getting Hold Of Judas

James Wood gives C.K. Stead's My Name Was Judas an unusually glowing review: "Written with glowing simplicity and rich in delicate humour, My Name Was Judas balances the attractions of empirical scepticism with our desire to believe in God and an afterlife...Stead's deft marshalling of the language, the way he gets words to do his bidding throughout without ever being obvious or showing off, only adds to the pleasure of reading this thought-provoking, witty and highly topical novel."

Reason enough to get hold of it. (How odd that lists it as being "currently unavailable" at present.)
