Sebastian Barnack, a handsome English schoolboy, is on bad terms with his
socialist father who disapproves of his hedonistic lifestyle. He escapes to
Florence in order to learn about life. His education there, thanks to the
contradictory influences of his scurrilous Uncle Eustace and a saintly
bookseller, is both sacred and profane. A haunting novel from one of the
twentieth century's most powerful commentators.
