              My Name Was Judas
               

              My Name Was Judas (Paperback)

              By Stead, C. K.

              We all know the story of Jesus told by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, but what about the version according to Judas? Judas's name became synonymous with betrayer, but is that how he saw it himself? In this witty, original and teasingly controversial version, recounted some forty y...ears after the death of Jesus, Judas finally tells the story as he remembers it. Looking back on his childhood and youth from an old age the gospel writers denied him, Judas recalls his friendship with Jesus; their schooling together; their families; the people who would go on to be disciples and followers; their journeys together and their dealings with the powers of Rome and the Temple. His is a story of friendship and rivalry, of a time of uncertainty and enquiry, a testing of belief, endurance and loyalty. With his richly painted backdrop of ancient Palestine, Stead goes beyond the boundaries of the story known to us all and convincingly enters the mind of one of its key players. This bold novel, with its wonderfully clear narrative prose, is fresh, provocative and compelling.

              Dog (Trade Paperback / Paperback, New title)

              By Stead, C. K.; Edited by Kinsella, John

              Opening with a sequence of poems entitled 'King's Lynn and the Pacific' which follows the fortunes of two young sailors voyaging with Captain Cook, and closing with another sequence, 'At Wagner's Tomb', with a central group of poems - alternately witty, satirical, philosophical, ...reflective, lyrical - in which the 'Dog' theme of the opening sequence returns, this collection shows C. K. Stead to be in full charge of a talent which has surprised, delighted and challenged readers of poetry since it first declared itself in the 1950s.
