THE FINAL TESTIMONY OF RAPHAEL IGNATIUS PHOENIX

‘My name is Raphael Ignatius Phoenix and I am a hundred years old – or will be in ten days’ time, in the early hours of January 1st, 2000, when I kill myself…’

Raphael Ignatius Phoenix has had enough. Born at the beginning of the 20th century, he is determined to take his own life as the old millennium ends and the new one begins. But before he ends it all, he wants to get his affairs in order and put the record straight. That includes making sense of his own long life – a life that spanned the century. He decides to write it all down and, eschewing the more usual method of pen and paper, begins to record his story on the walls of the isolated castle that is his final home. Beginning with a fateful first adventure with Emily, the childhood friend who would become his constant companion, Raphael remembers the multitude of experiences, the myriad encounters and, of course, the ten murders he committed along the way . . .

And so begins one man’s wholly unorthodox account of the twentieth century – or certainly his own riotous, often outrageous, somewhat unreliable and undoubtedly singular interpretation of it.

The Author
Ο ΠΟΛ ΣΑΣΜΑΝ γεννήθηκε το 1966. Σπούδασε Ιστορία στο Κέμπριτζ και στη συνέχεια ασχολήθηκε με τη δημοσιογραφία, αρθρογραφώντας για τις εφημερίδες Independent, Guardian, Evening Standard αλλά και την ιστοσελίδα CNN.com. Ως συγγραφέας, διακρίθηκε στα περιπετειώδη θρίλερ με φόντο αρχαιολογικά μυστήρια, και τα βιβλία του μεταφράστηκαν σε πάνω από 30 γλώσσες πουλώντας πάνω από 3 εκατομμύρια αντίτυπα. Ο Πολ πέθανε αιφνιδίως τον Μάιο του 2012. Η ΕΞΩΦΡΕΝΙΚΗ ΟΜΟΛΟΓΙΑ ΤΟΥ ΡΑΦΑΗΛ ΙΓΝΑΤΙΟΥ ΦΙΝΙΞ είναι το πρώτο αλλά και τελευταίο του βιβλίο. Το έγραψε όταν ξεκινούσε τη συγγραφική του πορεία, το άφησε, όμως, στην άκρη προκειμένου να αφοσιωθεί στα θρίλερ. Ανακαλύφθηκε εκ νέου μετά τον θάνατό του και η έκδοσή του εκπληρώνει την επιθυμία μιας ολόκληρης ζωής.
