Hallucinations

(1971)
Or, the Ill-fated Peregrinations of Fray Servandod
A novel by

 
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
