9780099468646: Earthly Powers (Vintage Classics)

Kenneth Toomey is an eminent novelist of dubious talent; Don Carlo Campanati is a man of God, a shrewd manipulator who rises through the Vatican to become the architect of church revolution and a candidate for sainthood. These two men are linked not only by family ties but by a common understanding of mankind's frailties. In this epic masterpiece, Anthony Burgess plumbs the depths of the essence of power and the lengths men will go for it.

Review:

"Crowded, crammed, bursting with manic erudition, garlicky puns, omnilingual jokes... which meshes the real and personalised history of the twentieth century" (Martin Amis)

"Burgess is the great postmodern storehouse of British writing-an important experimentalist; an encyclopaedic amasser, but also a maker of form; a playful comic, with a dark gloom" (Malcolm Bradbury)

"Enormous imagination and vitality - a huge book in every way" ( Sunday Times)

"A hellfire tract thrown down by a novelist at the peak of his powers" ( The Times)

"In all ways, a remarkable book" (Paul Theroux)

Book Description:

Rollicking, panoramic epic of 20th century by the author of 'A Clockwork Orange'
