Earthly Powers by Burgess, Anthony

Earthly Powers

Burgess, Anthony

So well placed in the opening sentence stakes - 'It was the afternoon of my eighty-first birthday, and I was in bed with my catamite when Ali announced that the archbishop had come to see me.' - that the narrator himself can't resist endorsing it a few lines further on as 'an arresting opening'.
