Three Cheers For The Paraclete

Three Cheers For The Paraclete

By  Tom Keneally

Winner of the 1968 Miles Franklin Award

Winner of the 1968 Miles Franklin Award

From the moment he allows his young cousin and bride to spend the night in his room, Father Maitland causes raised eyebrows and dark mutterings amongst the brothers at St Peter's. Time and again his efforts to do the right thing for his fellow men lead him into conflict with his superiors and the immutable laws of the church - a conflict which ultimately threatens to destroy him both as a priest and as a man.

Thomas Keneally's darkly satirical novel, which won him his second successive Miles Franklin Award resounds with intellect and humour.
