Last Supper by Pawel Huelle
Book DescriptionSet in Gdansk, the story centres on a single day in the near future, when twelve men have been invited by their mutual friend, an artist, to model at a photographic session for a modern version of The Last Supper. The histories of the twelve men are revealed through their thoughts on the day: their wayward behaviour is a reflection of the role of the Church in Polish society today. The reunion is disturbed as a wave of terrorist bombs paralyses the city, creating upheaval and a sense of unease.Provocative, witty and heretical, "The Last Supper" raises fundamental questions about the nature of belief in modern society: it is a brilliant, erudite novel of ideas.
