The fire gospel by Michel Faber ( Book )
26 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 1,024 WorldCat member 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

Some rain must fall by Michel Faber ( Book )
23 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Michel Faber's short stories are markedly diverse-the voice of each is so distinct that the book reads like an anthology of different writers. But Faber's radically inventive style fastens all fifteen stories into a compelling collection deserving of the high praise it garnered in the United Kingdom. One surreal story, "Fish," projects a futuristic world populated with fish swimming in the air. As sharks hover in abandoned corners and human zealots of the Church of the Armageddon loose their fanaticism on the innocent, it's a mother's full-time job to protect her young daughter. The title story, "Some Rain Must Fall," tells of a substitute schoolteacher called on in a crisis, and as she encourages her pupils to express their feelings, we learn the source of the class's trouble: a devastating act that resonates with contemporary America. As Garth Morris wrote in the Mail on Sunday (London), "these are well-crafted pieces of quiet forlorn intensity in a very real world."

The book of strange new things : a novel by Michel Faber ( Book )
7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the publication of The Crimson Petal and the White, Michel Faber became one of the most lauded and admired novelists at work in the world today. This rich, brilliantly written, and highly original work about the struggles, ambitions, and progress of a nineteen-year-old prostitute in Victorian England was hailed as "a big, sexy, bravura novel" by the New York Times. It has sold nearly half a million copies in the U.S. alone. In 2011, it was made into an acclaimed mini-series by the BBC, starring Romola Garai, Chris O'Dowd, Shirley Henderson, Richard E. Grant, and Gillian Anderson. Faber's new book, his first in thirteen years, is full of emotion and deep humanity. The Book of Strange New Things is a mind-blowing work that fearlessly tackles the search for meaning in an unfathomable universe. It concerns Peter and Beatrice, whose marriage is tested when Peter travels as a missionary, spreading the Gospel to a faraway land, and Beatrice is left to deal with troubles at home. In the most extraordinary and spellbinding ways, it deals with faith'religious faith, to be sure, but also faith in one's self, faith in salvation, and faith in those we love. Riveting, mysterious and eye-opening, Faber's latest novel is sure to be one of the most read and discussed books of 2014
