The Time of the Angels by Iris Murdoch

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews



An Anglican priest loses his faith and sends his family and parish spinning into chaos Father Carel Fisher’s London rectory—like his faith—is a shell. The rectory remains hollowed and broken from bombs dropped in the Second World War, while his religious passion abandoned him long ago. As Carel becomes a shut-in, his brother Marcus sets out to save him before it’s too late. Rich and complex, The Time of the Angels is a powerful story of a man’s descent into madness, and the destruction he wreaks along the way
