Set 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.

Notă biografică

Pawel Huelle was born in 1957. The author of Who Was David Weiser?, Huelle is a novelist, playwright and journalist who has lived most of his life in Gdansk. His latest novel Castorp was published in Poland in 2004.


Mixing whimsy, satire and musings on art and religion, it both intrigues and exasperates.
Huelle's erudite writing bestows a mordant wit on even the weightiest subject matter... his prose has an other-worldly quality.
