The intriguing confession of the man who sentenced Jesus Christ to death. Following Pilate’s life from his early youth up to ten years after Christ’s crucifixion, the author speaks out about the moral dilemmas and lives of people without a spiritual footing.
MIRO GAVRAN (1961) is a contemporary Croatian writer whose works have been translated into 32 languages. His novels have gone through more than 150 different editions at home and abroad. He has written nine novels: FORGOTTEN SON, HOW WE BROKE OUR LEGS, CLARA, MARGITA, JUDITH, JOHN THE BAPTIST, PONTIUS PILATE, THE ONLY WITNESS TO BEAUTY, and KAFKA’S FRIEND.
He is also a successful playwright and his plays have had more than 200 theatre first-nights and have been seen by more than two million theatre-goers worldwide. Characteristic to all his texts are: a strong story, emotional characters and a positive stance towards life. His themes frequently relate to male-female relations, and family and political manipulation. He is the only living author in Europe to have had a theatre festival dedicated to their works – the GAVRANFEST founded in Slovakia in 2003. He is so popular at home that his readers set up his FAN CLUB in Croatia some ten years ago. He has received some twenty awards in Croatia and abroad including THE EUROPEAN CIRCLE AWARD given for affirmation of European values in literary work, and the 1999 CENTRAL EUROPEAN TIME LITERARY AWARD for the year’s best author in the region. He lives in Zagreb as a professional writer.
