What People are Saying About This

C. Day-Lewis

The beauty of this prose, unsurpassed by any living English writer, has nothing to do with "fine writing" but springs from a sound moral core and from an intelligence with the keenest edge.

This is an underrated classic allegory of good versus evil. I remember enjoying reading it immensely and was later pleased to find it on Anthony Burgess' list of 99 novels which he considers the best since 1939. This is certainly among the best that I have read from the modern era.
