Morality Play is Barry Unsworth''s first nove l since winning the Booker prize in 1992. It is a dark and p owerful fable about the masks we wear, the roles we play and the corrupted nature of justice. 'Review:
A perfect novel. . . . This book dazzles on every level. Its lyrically surprising, unforgettably credible, darkly challenging. You succumb happily on page one and stay in thrall right up to the quick, bruising end. --Julie Myerson"
