This is our most ambitious work of literature since Beckett's prose trilogy... It is a labyrinthine confessional, clamorous with sin, guilt and malice, with no hint of absolution. The gesture of betrayal reshapes itself in a thousand promiscuous writhings - sexual, political, social economic; the hells of Dante and Hieronymus Bosch rendered in steel-glass corridor, pedestrian arcade, academic cloister, with devils and damned in cashmere, denim, corduroy, polyester... It is the work of moral terrorism, a modern sensibility struggling with medieval demons. You would have to fare far to encounter in literature or life such naked fear - and its attendant self-loathing - so bravely confronted. The Book of Judas is magisterial, a work of supreme technical maturity. -- Augustine Martin * Irish Independent. *
