[mild wear to book; jacket has numerous small tears/creases at edges and corners, tiny bit of tape residue on flaps]. 'An authentic novel about the sexual conflicts of Catholic priests,' the book traces the tragic downfall of a young priest who breaks his vow of celibacy, from 'his first philandering with a notorious coquette at the university he was attending in Switzerland [through his] seeking assuagement of his illicit lusts in red-light districts of Washington, D.C.And, finally, we witness the disintegration of his personality in an affair that will interest even the most blase reader.' (The author claims to have obtained much of the information that inspired this novel from his daily contacts with students of the Department of Theology at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, which he attended from 1938 to 1941.)
