Pelagius Book

A novel of friendship and betrayal, of power and intrigue – of ideas, and hope.

As the Roman Empire starts to collapse from within, one man seems to understand what is happening. He is Pelagius, a charismatic philosopher from the province of Britain, now living in the imperial capital. In this evocative tale which echoes down to the present day, Pelagius must race against time to establish a new way of thinking before Rome is overrun by the Barbarians.

Very stylish and fluent writing.
David Malouf

Storytelling of simplicity and clarity, with a complex psychological and philosophical undertow.
Peter Goldsworthy

Beautifully written . . . The Pelagius Book is going to be a classic.

This beautifully written tale is a fascinating window into a world that is, in many ways, strangely familiar.
