One of the biggest privileges of my writing life has been encountering humble yet incredibly talented authors and becoming friends with the people behind truly inspiring books.

I came across Richard Zimler‘s hit “The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon” by chance via a google search and have devoured his work ever since. Few people write with such delicate humanity and sensitivity, always think of others and enchant with prose as he does. I have read all of his work and am a huge fan.

I had the honour of meeting him on social media and in Lisbon last year and now am over the moon to see his latest work “The Gospel According to Lazarus” finally published in English. I received the honour of a preview copy from the publishers and am over the moon. I’m already far into the novel and can’t wait to post my review.
Such a great idea to pick Lazarus as narrator is all I can say for now. Thanks Richard and team!
