Description

Banished to a desert retreat for recalcitrant clerics, the Reverend but randy Thomas Marshfield preens his fantasies. A Month of Sundays, written ad libidum as occupational therapy, is his confession and his testament. Interspersed with dazzling insights, bawdy wit and an intrigue of undelivered sermons, John Updike's book reveals with demonic zeal the very odour of a pastor adrift in modern America.
