The Gospel According to the Novelist

Full Product Description

Why have so many prominent literary authors-from Philip Pullman and Jose Saramago to Michele Roberts and Colm Toibim-recently rewritten the canonical story of Jesus Christ? What does that say about our supposedly secular age? In this insightful study, Magdalena Maczynska defines and examines the genre of scriptural metafiction novels that not only transform religious texts but also draw attention to these transformations. In addition to providing rich examples and close readings, Maczynska positions literary studies within interdisciplinary debates about religion and secularity. Her book demonstrates a surprising turn of events: even as contemporary novelists deconstruct the traditional categories of secular and sacred writing, they open up new spaces for scripture in contemporary culture."

The Gospel According to the Novelist by Magdalena Maczynska was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in March 2017. The ISBN for The Gospel According to the Novelist is 9781350028449.
