The Jesus Man by Christos Tsiolkas

The Jesus Man

Christos Tsiolkas

Tackling politics, religion and bigotry as three brothers, one of them to become a killer, grow up in modern Australia. 'The Jesus Man' is not Dostoevsky - but rather the Klu Klux Klan meets the Marquis de Sade. Gripping but definitely NOT for the faint-hearted.

Extract

You forgot to say happy birthday, you dickhead. Tommy pissed, holding his cock, resting the thickness in his palm. The boy's lean body, no fat, no sagging or decay. A spurt of semen in a young child's mouth. He thought of the kidnapped girl. He flushed, looking in the mirror.
Had he always been a sicko? From birth?
