Summary

Summary

The winner of such prestigious honors as the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and the Costa Book Award, Colm TOibIn has been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. The Testament of Mary presents the mother of Jesus Christ in her later years. Embittered by her son's crucifixion, by the disciples she holds in contempt, and by her own failings, Mary casts a long-suffering figure--one that challenges more typical depictions of her.
