ET SI LES FEMMES PRENAIENT ENFIN LE
POUVOIR DANS LE MONDE ENTIER ?

découvrent qu'elles détiennent le "pouvoir".
Du bout des doigts, elles peuvent infliger
une douleur fulgurante - et même la mort.
Soudain, les hommes comprennent
qu'ils deviennent le "sexe faible".
Mais jusqu'où iront les femmes
pour imposer ce nouvel ordre ?

Insolente, rebelle, Ronit a quitté l'Angleterre et la communauté juive orthodoxe à dix-huit ans, direction New York. Refusant de se plier au destin tout tracé de mère de famille et d'épouse, elle a désobéi à son père, le grand Rav Krushka. À la mort de ce dernier, quinze ans plus tard, Ronit est rappelée auprès de sa famille, à Hendon. Elle retrouve Esti, qui fut sa petite amie, et son cousin Dovid. Eux n'ont pas désobéi. Dovid est devenu rabbin presque malgré lui. Esti a nié son attirance pour les femmes et suivi les préceptes de la Torah : elle a épousé Dovid... sans cesser d'aimer Ronit. Le retour de l'enfant maudite dans ce monde replié sur lui-même va provoquer une onde de choc.

And James, already damaged by Oxford and looking for a group to belong to.For a time they live in a charmed world of learning and parties and love affairs. But university is no grounding for adult life, and when, years later, tragedy strikes they are entirely unprepared.

Now, a year after Yehoshuah's death, four people tell their stories. His mother flashes between grief and rage while trouble brews between her village and the occupying soldiers. Iehuda, who was once Yehoshuah's friend, recalls how he came to lose his faith and find a place among the Romans. Caiaphas, the High Priest at the great Temple in Jerusalem, tries to hold the peace between Rome and Judea. Bar-Avo, a rebel, strives to bring that peace tumbling down. Viscerally powerful in its depictions of the realities of the period: massacres and riots, animal sacrifice and human betrayal, The Liars' Gospel finds echoes of the present in the past. It was a time of political power-play and brutal tyranny and occupation. Young men and women took to the streets to protest. Dictators put them down with iron force. Rumours spread from mouth to mouth. Rebels attacked the greatest Empire the world has ever known. The Empire gathered its forces to make those rebels pay. And in the midst of all of that, one inconsequential preacher died. And either something miraculous happened, or someone lied.
