Vanilla bright like Eminem : stories by Michel Faber ( Book )
22 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 828 libraries worldwide
In Faber's collection of short stories, techniques range from the hyper-realism of the opening story, with its harrowing portrayal of a man living in a nightmare world of dispossession, to a sly account of the mysterious end of an author who narrates her novels in animal voices. Interior monologues and letters are interspersed with third-person narration. The landscapes are sometimes exotic: the grimly farcical account of a conference speaker's party trick, a lecture on coconut power, is set in Indonesia; a woman doctor is kidnapped to treat a dictator's cancer in an unnamed land that recalls Latin America. In the enigmatic title story, twins face the dilemma of disposing of a loved person's body "at the icy zenith of the world". More often, the stories unfold in familiar places with threatening corners: urban Scotland or small-town England, as in "Flesh Remains Flesh'", about a 19th-century tannery owner obsessed with preservation.
The fire gospel by Michel Faber ( Book )
16 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 815 libraries worldwide
Theo Griepenkerl, a Canadian linguistics scholar, is sent to Iraq in search of artifacts that have survived the destruction and looting of the war. While visiting a museum in Mosul, he finds nine papyrus scrolls tucked in the belly of a bas-relief sculpture: they have been perfectly preserved for more than two thousand years. After smuggling them out of Iraq and translating them from Aramaic, Theo realizes the extent of his career-making find, for he is in possession of the Fifth Gospel, and it offers a shocking and incomparable eyewitness account of Christ's crucifixion and last days on Earth. Nakedly ambitious and recently dumped by his girlfriend, Theo sets out to share his discovery with the world in the form of a headline--grabbing U.S. book tour. Caught in the throes of his newfound fame, Theo fails to consider the global and cultural ramifications his discovery will have with God-fearing folks and religious zealots worldwide. Like Prometheus's gift of fire, Theo's book has incendiary consequences.
