"Here is the graphically drawn portrait of contemporary man being torn asunder the God and the devil, by the longings of the soul and the demands of the flesh. Two antagonistic worlds form the setting. One the one hand is the strange and unknown world within a French monastery, where life has remained virtually unchanged since the Middle Ages; and on the other, the violent and often brutal world that stretches beyond the monastery walls." Texas author's first book, written while he was blind; he later regained his sight, and went on to write, most famously, "Black Like Me." . (Inventory #: 13302)
