About this title


Confined in the Institute for Aberrant Behavior, Lancelot Andrewes Lamar, scion of a distinguished Southern family and disenchanted liberal lawyer, tells a psychiatrist-priest of his efforts to prove his wife's infidelity and his decision to begin life anew

From the Publisher:

"A modern knight-errant on a quest after evil.... Convincing and chilling." -The New York Times Book Review

"Eloquent, reckless, accurate, hilarious...plunges forward through tawdry bedroom mysteries toward a final grand puzzle." -Washington Post Book World

"A fine novel...Percy is a seductive writer attentive to sensuous detail, and such a skillful architect of fiction that the very discursiveness of his story informs it with energy and tension." -Newsweek

"A funny and scarifying jeremiad on the modern age. Lancelot is easy to read and hard to forget." -Time
