Testament by Nino Ricci( Book )
21 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and Swedish and held by 793 libraries worldwide
"Grounded in extensive research, making use of a Rashomon-like narrative strategy, and written with the elegant poetic eye that has earned Nino Ricci an international reputation, Testament is a bold work of historical fiction. It vividly recreates the world of first-century Palestine to explore the very beginnings of the myth surrounding the man we know as Jesus. Testament approaches Jesus through the refracting prism of four characters. We hear, in turn, from Judas, Mary Magdalen, Jesus' mother, Mary, and Simon, a young Syrian shepherd who is not in the Bible but who may remind readers of Huckleberry Finn. Distinct in concern, event, and style, each deeply human and beautifully rendered, these overlapping narratives together tell the recognizable story of the four gospels. But in Testament there is no recourse to miracle. Rather, Ricci has found plausible, naturalistic explanations for a good many of the Bible's miraculous events. And yet, as readers, we already begin to see how the story of this passionate, charismatic man, subject to different eyes and desires and to countless retellings, will be transformed into myth -- indeed, is already being transformed. Ricci is not the first novelist to approach this central figure of Western civilization, but here he accomplishes something of an entirely different order: a portrait that is historically grounded, philosophically rich, emotionally moving, and speaks eloquently to the place and power of stories in our lives"--Publisher's description

Sleep by Nino Ricci( Book )
3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
David Pace is a man who has it all--a successful career as an almost-famous academic, a wife blessed with both beauty and brains, a young son and a lovely home. But David's brain has begun to misfire. It shuts off when David is meant to be awake--when he's writing, when he's lecturing, when he's driving--but otherwise denies him any rest at all. Popping a variety of pills at an increasingly alarming rate, David struggles to remain alert, but his efforts become less and less effective, leaving his family in tatters and his career on the brink. Then, almost by accident, David finds himself with a loaded gun in his hands, and all of a sudden he feels tantalizingly, gloriously awake. The sensation, fuelled by a steady mix of pharmaceuticals, launches David towards the extremes of human behaviour, and as his choices become more and more abhorrent and the risks he is willing take more and more dangerous, David's sense of what is real, who he is, and what he is capable of slips terrifyingly out of reach
