The Sacred and the Profane 在线电子书 图书描述

From Publishers Weekly Altoona, Pa., in the late '60s is the scene of this fast, gutsy, unsubtle novel about the priesthood and its pitfalls. Father Alex Stribling, an angel-faced young priest who doubts his vocation, and wealthy Alice Kinsella, flashing her naked body at Alex in the confessional, are the principal protagonists. Power-mad Alice hungers to manipulate the Catholic hierarchy, which includes her brother the bishop, and to destroy all priests. Dubbed the "dragon lady," Alice behaves like a force of allegorical malevolence in league with the devil. But her seductive tactics tempt Alex to rage rather than lust. His sexual initiation is brought about by Nikki Albrecht, the daughter of the rectory housekeeper. Nikki carries her own burden of guilt for letting her retarded baby sister drown while dallying incestuously with her twin, Frank. Blackmail, alcoholism, wife-battering, a botched abortion, a suicide, keep the plot steamrolling, though the characterization is blunt enough to have been honed with a hacksaw. Michaels is at his best when revealing the "Roman collar club" in heated parley, especially when intellectual/activist Father Schmidt tells Alex why the Vietnam war must be denounced from the pulpit. Admirers of Andrew Greeley will feel at home in Michaels's world. Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Library Journal Handsome, idealistic Father Alex Strib ling arrives in the sleepy town of Altoona, Pennsylvania in 1966 on his first assignment, and meets his nemesis--scheming parishioner Alice Kinsella, who is obsessed with seducing priests. While fending her off, he survives a flood, an attempted shooting, and church power politics, only to succumb to a love affair with his respectable young secretary. This long melodramatic novel is billed by its publisher as the new Thorn Birds; it's not as good . In the Andrew Greeley tradition, it's roller coaster-paced and slick, with plenty of violence and soft-core sex. Middlebrow readers will love it, and they need not be Roman Catholic to figure out the heavy-handed religious symbolism. A potential big circulator. Larger collections will want it.- Joyce Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
