SIMON CALLED PETER A WAR AND ROMANCE NOVEL!
This tale of a priest's wartime affair with a young nurse has been described as "an astounding novel, the most delicate, the most beautiful, and the most outspoken love story of modern fiction."
The title is a reference to Simon Peter the apostle and first Pope of the Catholic Church. The book was controversial at its introduction due to its sexual and religious content.
The old-fashioned pious books made hell stink of brimstone and painted the Devil hideous. But Satan is not such a fool. Champagne and Martinis do not taste like Gregory powder, nor was St. Anthony tempted by shrivelled hags. Paganism can be gay, and passion look like love. Moreover, still more truly, Christ could see the potentiality of virtue in Mary Magdalene and of strength in Simon called Peter. The conventional religious world does not.
