EmmausBook - 2012
The secular and the pious. The rich and the poor. Those with a capacity for destiny and those who cannot afford it. Emmaus is a world of stark contrasts, one in which four young men all from proud, struggling families, and all lusting after Andre, a hyper-sexual woman, are goaded from adolescence to manhood in a torrent of exploits and crises, sexual awakenings and morbid depressions, naivety and fatalism. A brilliant portrait of the perils and uncertainties of youth and faith, Emmaus is a remarkable novel from one of the very best writers in Europe.
