Overview

No one would know his real age. Or how he felt inside. Or what he had to do to stay the way he was.

In the last quarter of the 21st century, Jeffrey Cooper, an Alabama-raised, executive design star living in Americanized Germany, has made a Faustian pact with the huge global economic system running the world. The system will keep him young and razor-sharp, as long as he can stay on top of do his job and keep profits high. But stress from work and the congested, hyper-competitive life around him is killing Jeffrey. Can he keep his stress level a secret from the system itself, his co-workers, and even his own seductive German therapist who has told him that, when all else fails, there are "angels" who can save him, and often we don't know who they are?

But one will appear in Jeffrey's life. At first, he seems to be the Devil himself, offering every kind of excitement, even offering Jeffrey back his own lost soul-but will this younger, mysterious and attractive man end up killing Jeffrey, or saving him?
In Carnal Sacraments, Perry Brass has created a parable of our time and the future, of an emerging international business culture based on war, and of intense sexuality as a key to religious experience and personal salvation. Author of The Harvest, Warlock, and Angel Lust, Perry Brass continues his explora-tion of the joining of sexuality, consciousness, and spirituality in this very poignant and mature novel.
