Great Author, Great Books

Morality Play Morality Play by Barry Unsworth

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is one of the best books I have read! It is a great AIDS parable. All of Unsworth's books that I have read have been excellent; read this brief bio. My absolute favourite is Sacred Hunger...an excellent look at slavery in all its manifestations: economic, social, psychological. His new book is about Iraq: Land of Marvels:A Novel. Read the LA Times review. The book was also given great reviews in the Financial Times of London. He was recently in Seattle.

At the end of January, Unsworth read from his new book at the Seattle Public Library; the podcast of this event may be accessed from the Library's home page.
