About the book

Are you tired of waiting for more?

Faith and love are put to the test in this novel of rage, art and ambition, written for our times.

Moving between the inner city and the Middle East, Paradise Now by Bristol author Jari Moate is a richly-textured quest for redemption.

Elektra is a film-maker whose day job at a call centre is killing her. When a last-ditch effort to showcase her art ends in disaster, betrayed by everyone she loves, she escapes to work on a You Tube show where identity itself is for sale, including hers. A figure from the Middle East targets her new-found notoriety in his thirst for judgement. She may be the one who holds the time-bomb to paradise, however, through the ghostly documentary of an urban boy preacher that she made in her darkest hour.

In a world of hope and broken promises, this is a pacy, intelligent quest for answers.
