Product description

Review

'Moving from offbeat humour to soaring spiritual ecstasy, it has both pathos and punch' Maya Jaggi, Guardian. (Guardian)

'A novella about hope and the possibility of realising it ... written with brio, and with vivid illuminating touches ... It reads beautifully' Allan Massie, Scotsman. (Scotsman)

'The Catholic Church takes a real kicking in this slim yet invective-packed satire ... lays bare the hypocrisy of the Church in richly descriptive sentences' Sunday Business Post. (Sunday Business Post)

'A fable of vice and desire as comic as it is disturbing' Lucy Scholes, Sunday Times. (Sunday Times)

'An entertaining and engaging read, with arresting images that linger in the mind long after the book has been returned to the shelf' Wayne Gooderham, Time Out. (Time Out)

'a ripe and atmospheric satire on ecclesiastical hypocrisy' Sunday Telegraph. (Sunday Telegraph)
