"A parable, rather than a novel in the ordinary sense of the term, The Sibyl is . . . a work of manifold meanings and unmistakable profundity, one that can neither be easily understood nor easily forgotten." —Granville Hicks, The New Leader

About the Author:

Par Lagerkvist (1891-1974), the author of some thirty-five books, was celebrated in his time for his versatility as a poet, dramatist, essayist, and novelist. He was elected to the Swedish Academy in 1940 and in 1951 was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature.

From AudioFile:

THE SIBYL offers an opportunity to hear the work of a Nobel Prize-winning author (1951) whose work is not particularly well known in English. An old woman who lives in the mountains near Delphi is visited by the legendary Wandering Jew, who was cursed with immortality for refusing to let Jesus rest on his way to being crucified. The recording uses its three narrators to good effect, with the majority of the narration given over to the woman's own rambling tale. While all three narrators handle their roles well, the tale is tiresome, the narration unable to transcend the material.
