9780141185682: Earthly Powers (Penguin Modern Classics)
Reseña del editor:

Anthony Burgess' epic masterpiece traces eighty-one years in the life of a Somerset Maugham-type writer and lapsed Catholic called Kenneth Toomey. A popular, second-rate novelist/playwright, he spends a lifetime unsuccessfully trying to reconcile his homosexuality with his faith. This is also the story of Carlo Campanati, an earthy Italian priest linked with Toomey through family ties. With dazzlingly inventive narrative spanning six decades, Burgess draws in major events and characters of the century while exploring themes of universal significance.

Biografía del autor:

The writer and critic Anthony Burgess was born John Anthony Burgess Wilson in Manchester. He studied at Xaverian College and Manchester University, lectured at Birmingham University, worked for the Ministry of Education, and taught at Banbury Grammar School. He then became an education officer in Malaya and Brunei where his experiences inspired his MALAYAN TRILOGY (1965). His many novels include A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, 1985, and ANY OLD IRON. In his later years he lived in Monaco. He died in 1993
