Riters as diverse as Kahlil Gibran and Norman Mailor and abundant reserves of creative invention Beard gives us his astonishing and amusing take on the greatest story ever told about second chances As children Lazarus and Jesus were thick as thieves But following a mysterious event their friendship dwindled in early adulthood One man struck out and became a flamboyant and successful businessman the other stayed beh. Full Disclosure I won this as an ARC copy from the Goodreads giveaway I was pretty excited to have won this one generally I m thrilled to win a book but I really do love Europa as a publisher No they didn t tell me to say that Yes I actually really do think have favourite publishers I m a librarian guys Lazarus raising from the dead is the last and arguably most famous of Jesus s public miracles resulting in two of the most famous Biblical uotes I am the resurrection and the life and Jesus Wept The thing is only John mentions Lazarus and that was written about 100 years after the other Gospels and the problem with John as well all know do we all know this My uncle used to be a Benedictine monk Maybe this isn t common knowledge John is less dependable Beard himself says it hilariously well Mark is considered the most factually accurate Matthew and Luke base their accounts on Mark while John is closer to the kind of writing known today as creative non fiction So yes Creative non fiction Historical Fact Whatever Anyways Beard s novel focus around the detail that Lazarus is described as Jesus friend something Jesus has few of Why is it Lazarus death that causes Jesus to weep Why did the first three gospel writers omit Lazarus from their version of historical record Beard traces the history of Jesus friendship with Lazarus then their adult lives I don t really want to get into much detail here because you know Spoilers so I m going to tell you what I think about the bookIn the best possible way I don t actually know what to make of the book Stylistically Beard is close to perfect flippant but never trivial and enough probability is added to the core of Lazarus s story to make you care about his eventual fate or you know one of the two options that Beard gives Which is true Who knows But about the book itself I don t actually know uite what to make of it It bounces between speculative fiction and realistic textual analysis It s a made up or not but maybe but really too complex a debate for Goodreads Biography of the man who was arguably Jesus only friend Complicated I know When you read it you ll understand Lazarus is Dead is arguably the most unusual and original book I ve read in a while and I read a lot of odd books Call it speculative fiction or whatever you want and go get a copy when it comes out It s very very much well worth a read You ll probably put it down and be a little confused and fairly thoughtful about what is fiction what is fact and the stories none of us know but wish we didhttpvivalaktblogspotca
