Product description

It is at once intimate and epic, poignant and funny, lyrical and analytic. Shocking events unfold against a backdrop of meticulously observed religious services. High Church ritual, evangelical revivalism and the ancestor-worship of the English gentry are all subjected to merciless scrutiny. In a fictional climate dominated by materialism, "Easter" stands apart in its bold exploration of the nature of God, the problem of suffering and the existence of evil. With an unforgettable gallery of characters ranging from a Holocaust survivor and an African princess to AIDS patients and Queen Elizabeth II, it provides a dazzling panorama of contemporary society. It its radical fusion of the sacred and profane, "Easter" throws down a challenge to believers and non-believers alike.
