Carel is widowed rector presiding over a London church destroyed during the war. The rectory is home to an array of residents: his daughter, Muriel; his beautiful invalid ward, Elizabeth; their West Indian servant, Pattie; Eugene, a Russian emigre, and his delinquent son, Leo. Carel’s brother, Marcus, is co-guardian of Elizabeth, but his attempts to get closer to the rector are constantly rebuffed.
These seven characters maintain a constant dance of attraction and repulsion, misunderstanding and revelation, the centre of which is the enigmatic Carel himself – a priest who believes that, God being dead, His angels have been released. Hardback. First edition in original dust-jacket designed by John Craxton. Condition: some light toning to front endpaper. Top edge slightly foxed. minor edge-wear to jacket and creasing to corners of front and rear flaps, otherwise very good in very good wrapper.
