              Proving that the Irish literary spirit of James Joyce, Flann O'Brien, and Samuel Beckett still exist in at least one Irish writer, Roger Boylan has composed a debut novel filled with hilarity and doom about the inhabitants of the Irish town of Killoyle--a host of peculiar folks, ...all suffering from and tortured by problems with God, sex, the drink and, of course, Ireland.

              Gustave Termi is sitting on the toilet in Geneva one day when the Archangel Michael calls him to become one of the elect. No one could be more bewildered by this call than the agnostic Gustave. An encounter with a journalist in a therapist's waiting room, however, leads this bumb...ling middle-aged professor to read of the similarly inexplicable mystical calling of Stefanie von Rothenberg, a cultured Austrian whose relationship with the daemonic is only a little less strange than her relationship with Adolf Hitler. The Adorations is a novel about Europe's true holy trinity-politics, faith, and insanity-narrated with effortless erudition by Roger Boylan, whose Nabokovian knack for sentence-making knows no equal.
