About This Item

Great Britain: Faber and Faber, 2006. First Edition. Cloth. As New/As New. Publisher: Faber & Faber., London; New hardback in new dustjacket. In a small Scottish parish, an English priest is stalked by the fear of scandal, class hatred and lost ideals. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Synopsis

"Always trust a stranger," said David’s mother when he returned from Rome. "It’s the people you know who let you down." Half a life later, David is Father Anderton, a Catholic priest with a small parish in Scotland. He befriends Mark and Lisa, rebellious local teenagers who live in a world he barely understands. Their company stirs memories of earlier happiness—his days at a Catholic school in Yorkshire, the student revolt in 1960s Oxford, and a choice he once made in the orange groves of Rome. But their friendship also ignites the suspicions and smoldering hatred of a town that resents strangers, and brings Father David to a reckoning with the gathered tensions of past and present. In this masterfully written novel, Andrew O’Hagan explores the emotional and moral contradictions of religious life in a faithless age.
