Inhaltsangabe

Kenneth Toomey is an eminent novelist of dubious talent; Don Carlo Campanati is a man of God, a shrewd manipulator who rises through the Vatican to become the architect of church revolution and a candidate for sainthood.

These two men are linked not only by family ties but by a common understanding of mankind's frailties. In this epic masterpiece, Anthony Burgess plumbs the depths of the essence of power and the lengths men will go for it.

Kritikerstimmen

"Crowded, crammed, bursting with manic erudition, garlicky puns, omnilingual jokes... which meshes the real and personalised history of the twentieth century." (Martin Amis)

One of the Great Novels of the 20th Century

This is really one of the great novels of the 20th century, and it is very well read. A great story encompassing all the horrors of history and human relations, and still extremely funny. And a joy to listen to. Highly recommended

Masterpiece

Anthony Burgess' wonderful Revue of the 20th century. Darkly comic and deeply sympathetic, exploring the human condition in a linguistic firework. Becomes better with every read.
