New York. 1987. Available Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. 9. 135 pages. February 1987. paperback. 0345342291. keywords:. inventory # 7603. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Jacques le Balleur was distracted from his writing by the shrunken head of his predecessor spiked on a rod before him. There was room on that rod for his head too, but just now the savages had given him a large tobacco leaf to write upon. They revered writing. Jacques was soon to learn what else they revered when, tied naked to a stake with a mask over his head, he met, instead of the expected instrument of brutal execution, a plethora of female hands caressing his body. Thus did the extraordinary reign of the French Calvinist Jacques le Balleur begin among the Tupinili cannibals of Brazil in 1560, as recorded in his ‘Monthly Reports’ on tobacco leaves. Addressing both his god and a future generation which would marvel at his good luck, Jacques outlines his role as a patriarch, Professor of both Theology and Language, and inheritor of an extensive harem. He owed it all to Rabelais. Having arrived in their midst with only ten pages left of his miniature four-volume complete works of the lascivious author, Jacques was astonished to discover that the Tupinilis mistook this remnant for the Bible they had been promised. He didn’t disillusion them, rather accepted it as God’s purpose to have preserved for him a document so closely aligned to the interests and customs of his captors. How this led to the formation of a Rabelaisian Parliament, the enactment of an orgiastic Passion Play, and a man’s life and death struggle to become a cuckold is to be discovered in the remarkable pages of COD STREUTH. How conkers in a bag were used to calculate age and fruits in a bowl to demonstrate the Royal Testiculatory Ability, and how a comet came to blaze in the sky presaging tribal doom - these are but a few of the unveiled mysteries that will leave the reader spellbound. Nowhere has Calvinist met cannibal, religion met Rabelais, or history met its match with more entertaining consequences than in Bamber Gascoigne’s hilariously imaginative theological extravaganza.

Sinopsis: Fiction

From Publishers Weekly: This pretends to be the diary of the fictional Jacques le Balleur, a lusty, apostate, 16th century French Calvinist who travels with missionary zealots deep into the jungles of Brazil. Soon the Europeans meet cannibals, and immediately a deep schism erupts among the missionaries over the issue of how the "eating" of Christ's "flesh and blood" is to be interpreted and, hence, whether cannibalism is to be prescribed or proscribed. Le Balleur is persecuted by his brethren and flees to a tribe that awaits the delivery of a sacred book. The tribe seizes le Balleur's copy of Rabelais, which becomes the foundation of a Rabelaisian cult with le Balleur as king, a position he must hold onto by continuing to prove his sexual prowess. This novel is farcical and whimsical but not delightful enough to be Rabelaisian. Only mildly humorous, and having far too ambitious a plot for a book of its short length, this leaves the reader feeling (if not a little revolted) empty and bemused.
