Product description

Review

"Weigel's thoughtful essays on democracy and religion offer new insights into the meaning of Catholic social doctrines for the 21st century." --"Publishers Weekly"

"Markham's deadpan wit and self-protective irony never desert him. He's never less than funny, and never less than moving. The English-speaking Caribbean has bred some wonderful wanderers from his generation, but none (certainly not Walcott or Naipaul) can boast a literary voice as wryly companionable as this." --Boyd Tonkin, " The Independent"

About the Author

E. A. Markham is the author of "Misapprehensions "and "A Rough Climate," shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot Prize. He is the author of three collections of stories and a memoir, "A Papua New Guinea Sojourn: More Pleasures of Exile."
