9780142000199: Hallucinations

In the brilliant tradition of Don Quixote and Candide, this passionate novel by the author of Before Night Falls is a modern masterpiece of Latin American fiction. Fray Servando priest, blasphemer, dueler of monsters, irresistible lover, misunderstood prophet, prisoner, and consummate escape artist wanders among the vice-ridden populations of eighteenth-century Europe and the Americas, fleeing dungeons, a marriage-minded woman, a slave ship captain, and the Inquisition. Whether by burro, by boat, or by the back of a whale, Fray Servando s journey is at once funny and romantic, melancholy and profound a tale rooted in history, yet outrageously hallucinatory.
An impenitent amalgam of truth and invention, historical fact and outrageous make-believe . . . a philosophical black comedy. The New York Times"
