From the publisher
An astonishing new masterpiece from the Nobel and twice Booker Prize-winning author of Disgrace and Summertime
After crossing oceans, a man and a boy - both strangers to each other - arrive in a new land. David, the boy, has lost his mother and Simon vows to look after him. In this strange new country they are assigned a new name, a new birthday, a new life.
Knowing nothing of their surroundings, nor the language or customs, they are determined to find David's mother. Though the boy has no memory of her, Simon is certain he will recognize her at first sight. "But after we find her," David asks, "what are we here for?"
The Childhood of Jesus is a profound, beautiful and continually surprising novel from a very great writer.
