In this superb adaptation of a novel by a 19th century Greek writer, Lawrence Durrell traces the remarkable history of a young woman who traveled across Europe in the 9th century disguised as a monk, acquired great learning, and ruled over Christendom for two years as Pope John VII before her sudden and surprising death in childbirth. The original, banned novel brought its author immediate fame as well as excommunication and is now securely established in the history of modern Greek literature. Subsequently, Durrell, one of the most important British writers of the 20th century and author of the Alexandria Quartet, created a masterpiece in its own right, a dazzling concoction presented with the deftest touch. A sophisticated literary delight.""-Publishers Weekly
