Description

‘Then he saw the barrel of a gun aimed dead on target – not at him, as he might have expected, but at the clergyman’s back.’

Set in a crumbling Spanish mansion, this gloriously comic and gothic novel follows the fortunes of an innocent young priest as he enters a world of moral decadence, sexual intrigue and corruption.

A new series of twenty distinctive, unforgettable Penguin Classics in a beautiful new design and pocket-sized format, with coloured jackets echoing Penguin’s original covers.
