Jim Crace is a novelist who makes no religious claims. He is a maker of worlds that have dark resonances, caught between time and eternity, that have their roots in forms of textuality and language that begin in the Hebrew Bible and may be traced in Christianity through the texts of the desert fathers to the writings of T. E. Lawrence and Gertrude Bell. He is a deceiver whose deceptions reveal truths that are familiar yet strange and mysterious.
