    I did not read this book but I found this review by David Kenneth on the internet:

    “I found this book to contain a nasty little story of a late adolescent male with rampant homosexual tendencies having a romp through some monasteries while offering ready opportunity for seduction at every opportunity. The narrative proceeds from one romp with a monk to another. There is little description of monasteries or of surrounding countruside. Half way through I stopped to flick ahead, finding more and more such romps. At that point I consigned the book to the eubbish bin”.

    The images bring back lovely memories of Ouranoupolis and the daily coming and going of monks and pilgrims…as I sat watching at one of the lovely cafes at the port. My husband was fortunate enough to go for 5 days —lucky guy!
