The Testament of Mary by Colm Toibin

By December 26, 2012

Follow me on:

Colm Toibin imbues the story of Mary and Jesus with a masterful lyricism, telling the story of Jesus's last months through the lamenting, relatable eyes of his mother, Mary. Toibin graces Mary with so complicated and genuine a voice that her story shines with a mother's love, sadness and uncertainty. The Testament of Mary lingers on her involvement with the fate of her son, and how responsible she was or should claim to be for his actions.
