During a vicious persecution of the clergy in Mexico, a worldly priest, the 'whisky priest', is on the run. With the police closing in, his routes of escape are being shut off, his chances getting fewer. But compassion and humanity force him along the road to his destiny, reluctant to abandon those who need him, and those he cares for.

  1. Greene i original.
    James, 29 april 2020

    Jag ville läsa Greene på originalspråk och jag blev inte besviken. Boken är ovanlig för att vara en av Greenes böcker, dels eftersom huvudpersonen inte är engelsman. Kan tillägga att den inte är så lång som jag hade väntat mig.

The most ingenious, inventive and exciting of our novelists, rich in exactly etched and moving portraits of real human beings -- V. S. Pritchett The power and energy of his finest novel derive from the will toward compassion, and ideal communism even more Christian than Communism. Its unit is the individual, not any class -- John Updike No serious writer of this century has more thoroughly invaded and shaped the public imagination than did Graham Greene * The Times * Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature * John Le Carre * Beautiful prose...melded with page-turning suspense... I defy anyone to read it without weeping * The Week *
