MY BOOKS/PLAYS

In 1994 my novel, 'THE LOST TESTAMENT OF JUDAS ISCARIOT' was published by BRANDON BOOKS, IRELAND.

 

Here were some of the Press comments at the time:

 

´An ingenious fictional theory´ The Guardian
´A brave book - Pick this one up´ the Birmingham Post
´Swept me along´ Books Ireland
´Clever and cynical´ Sunday Tribune
´Controversial - A novel promising to stir up a hornet´s nest...´The Newcastle Journal
 
 
Now it's out of print.  Time for a resurrection?
 

Here's a review of the book, which appeared in the TURKISH DAILY NEWS in 1994.

In 2005 I adapted the story into a drama - 'RISEN!'  
 
I know the play works very effectively on stage having directed a production with an amateur group of mixed nationalities  in 2006 at a theatre in Istanbul.  Audience reaction was positive.

READ THIS REVIEW OF THE PLAY  (then called 'THE RICH YOUNG MAN') from the Turkish Daily News.

NOT CONSTANTINOPLE

Little did Michael Dickinson know, when American political newsletter COUNTERPUNCH accepted and published his first article, that it would eventually lead to his arrest and detention in prison, an escape attempt at midnight chased by a gun shooting cop, pleas in the British Press for Tony Blair to ask the Turkish Prime Minister for clemency, and a demand for change in Turkey's laws against Freedom of Expression.
