A novel with a title as long as the book, relatively speaking. With over 500 pages, the author has provided us with a treatise - his treatise - on Angels.

Initially set in the 16th. century around a young boy, Antinous Bellori who comes across, unexpectdely, of course, a couple of angels high in the North Italian mountains, fishing with torch and spear. Thus we immediately realise that this book will not be the usual religious fare on Angels and their relationship with man. Re-telling two Old Testament stories takes up half the book, a beautifully explored view of the life of people from the period of Genesis going about their average daily life - but with guns, with stoves, takes the reader further into exploration and finally, up-to-date with a troubling account of a boy's relationship with his father and the world in which we live.

A marvellous book. Certainly thought-provoking and, happily, highly readable.
