    review Û Under Tiberius Under TiberiusIn my estimation Tosches has been treading water since the publication ofIn the Hand of Dante in 2002 Save the Last Dance for Satan published in 2011 was a rollicking fun look at the relationship between organized crime and the business of early 60s rock roll; King of the Jews his somewhat scattered examination of the life of Arthur Rothstein contains beautiful writing particularly the elegy for Hubert Selby Jr; Me and the Devil delves into Anne Rice territory with considerable emphasis on Tosches's celebrity buddies like Johnny Depp and Keith Richards It was the first time since Dino that I thought Tosches's writing boringVery much enjoyed last year's children's novel Johnny's First Cigarette written in collaboration with il

    review Û Under Tiberius Under TiberiusAfter reading Dino and Where Dead Voices Gather I'd probably be up for reading pretty much anything Nick Toches wrote up to and including his grocery list which I'm sure he'd manage to make interesting While the subject matter of this story didn't much appeal to me it's

    review Û Under Tiberius Under TiberiusI had never read Nick Tosches before and the concept of this book combined with all this forgive the pun rapturous last literary outlaw talk had me primed for a gleefully blasphemous angry novel The concept of this novel is simple Tosches on a trip to the Vatican stumbles across an ancient manuscript which reveals the real story of Jesus Fertile ground to be sure but Tosches almost takes the concept too far There's a lot of dead weight here almost all of it related to making this 'manuscript' sound as authentic as possible To paraphrase there's a lot of I write to you in the third year of Caligula's reign in the month of Janus etc It gets tiresome What threw me initially was that I was expecting something much snarky in tone while Tosches is trying to make this a tr

    review Û Under Tiberius Under TiberiusThis book like many in the Tosches ouevre is guaranteed to challenge and offend Doctrinaire Christians will dismiss it out of hand Open minded Christian intellects will admire the blasphemy and be instructed by its ruminations about the origins of religious faith I've always found Tosches to be a skilled writer the kind who knows how to bend a sentence to his will build characters we recognize from life and forge a story we don't easily wal
