Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Guzman by Louis de Bernieres

Book Description

While the economy of his small South American country collapses, President Veracruz joins his improbable populace of ex-soldiers, former guerrillas, unfrocked priests and reformed - though by no means inactive - whores, in a bizarre search for sexual fulfilment. But for Cardinal Guzman, a man tormented by his own private daemons, their stupendous, hedonistic fiestas represent the epicentre of all heresies. Heresies that must be challenged with a horrifying new inquisition destined to climax in a spectacular confrontation...

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Louis de Bernieres's brand of magical realism is a logical reaction to the manifest absurdity of day-to-day life in Latin America. In this sharp and spicy novel he takes on the big guns, church and state authority in evangelical overdrive. The heroes and heroines are life's quitters: former whores, unfrocked priests and ex-soldiers. The narrative jumps from a Mexican musician to a corrupt president to the anguished eponymous Cardinal in short, snappy chapters, with panache, wit, and a frank and robust carnality. The world invented in The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts continues to grow and bewitch. (Kirkus UK)
