Journal Entry 1 by bookguide from Wijchen, Gelderland Netherlands on Tuesday, April 22, 2008
Foreign Exchange.

Blurb:
In one of the southern states of Mexico, during an anti-clerical purge, the last priest, like a hunted hare, is on the run. Too human for heroism, too humble for martyrdom, the little worldly 'whisky priest' is nevertheless impelled towards his squalid Calvary as much by his own compassion for humanity as by the efforts of his pursuers.

A baleful vulture of doom hovers over this modern crucifixion story, but aboove the vulture soars an eagle - the inevitability of the Church's triumph.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I wasn't really expecting to enjoy this classic book set in Mexico. I should have remembered how much I enjoyed Brighton Rock and Animal Farm. The story, though oppressive, was interesting and the language was beautiful. For my full review with my favourite quotations and background reading, visit my Market Garden Reader book blog.
