An event with

Richard Zimler

The Gospel According to Lazarus

£5.00

Thursday 11th April 2019 at 6:30pm  |  Daunt Books Hampstead

Description

In his latest novel Richard Zimler, author of The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon,  takes up the New Testament tale of Lazarus, and recreates the story of the Passion of Christ from Lazarus’ point of view. In so doing, he places Jesus in the historical context of ancient Jewish practice and tradition: at once a charismatic rabbi and a political activist who uses his awareness of a transcendent reality to try to bring justice to his people and a broader compassion for humankind. Richard will be chatting about the book with Eva Hoffman, author of Lost in Translation and The Secret.
