Memoirs of a Gnostic Dwarf

Author(s): David Madsen


Memoirs of a Gnostic Dwarf was in The Guardian's '1000 Novels To Read Before You Die'. It is a cult classic, warm, fruity and a must-read for lovers of the Baroque, visitors to Rome, clergymen of all persuasions and anyone who likes their historical fiction with a big dollop of excess. The narrator is a hunchbacked dwarf,' who now moves in the highest circles of holy skulduggery and buggery', as memorably described by Phil Baker in the Sunday Times.
