The most startling book you will read is the one you didn’t see coming. My book—concerning a former bishop of Nancy (Saint Calpicius) who has been granted permission to return to earth (incognito) to restore his reputation. His return puts him in Paris in 1919, just at the end of the World War I. This is where his misadventures begin.
Mr. Andre Marten (Saint Calpicius) begins his quest by immersing himself in the literary and art scenes of this very hopeful time in human history. He has a short term only to wine and dine Parisians in what turns out to be a failed campaign for redemption. The lessons lie within, but the clarity of what he is learning is not revealed until the bitter end.
