The Last Temptation of Christ
BY NIKOS KAZANTZAKIS, Faber, ₹ 599
This is a novel that unravels the Christ we know from the Bible. For me, it is the most creative presentation of the struggles he faced in his growth from man to divinity.
My Name is Red: A Novel
BY ORHAN PAMUK, Vintage, ₹ 799
The novel depicts the conflict and resentment between the painters who were commissioned a book, to be produced during the reign of the 16th-century Ottoman king Murat III. It evolves into a dialogue between the paintings of the West and the East. Each chapter has a different narrative style presented by each of the characters. This and the delicious suspense that keeps going till the end make this work brilliant.
