C.K. Stead is challenging, fun, urbane and brilliant... Read him. -- John de Falbe * Spectator * A languid yet gripping portrayal of modern literary life in Europe. * Good Reading magazine * [Stead] has the ability to set the scene in a few pithy lines and condense more telling details into a handful of pages than many writers manage in their entire chapters * Sunday Times * A gifted and intelligent novelist * Independent * Paris suits Stead. There is a joie de vivre to the writing * NZ Listener * The novel crackles with the expected wit and erudition of Stead... Stead riffs with language, playing with words as he searches for le mot juste. The result is amusing and intoxicating * Stuff.co.nz * A few chapters in, I found myself in the grip of an artist with the ability to capture mood and beauty in a sentence * Financial Times on RISK * fine, thoughtful and insightful * Daily Mail on RISK * An elegant and assured novel * Scotsman on RISK * Written with glowing simplicity and rich in delicate humour...[A] thought-provoking, witty and highly topical novel -- James Wood * Daily Telegraph on MY NAME WAS JUDAS * [An] elegant, calm novel...Stead maintains an eye unblinkingly opposed to the transcendental * Guardian on MY NAME WAS JUDAS *
A beautifully written literary page-turner from one of the great New Zealand writers, recent NZ poet laureate C. K. SteadSee all Product description

It is too difficult in an EBOOK to go back and find the source of lines of poetry that are still in my mind. Will check with Mr Google.
