Don Juan in Lourdes

(1966)
A novel by

 
A writer and his blind friend go on a drunken pilgrimage to Lourdes to find out whether or not the blindness can be cured by faith. They are torn between flirtations with spiritual convictions and a variety of sins that include drinking and women. One of the people they meet is a drunken priest who says he has lost his faith. The writer refuses to go through with the Catholic ritual and drives off into the Pyrenees. He has his own problems with a failed marriage, though he is still in love with wife Maggie. "What Hemingway did for the twenties in The Sun Also Rises, DeMaria does here for the 'sixties." - Anthony Burgess
