Good Offices

by Evelio Rosero

Rosero transforms a single day in the life of a Catholic church in Bogota into a kaleidoscope where vivid, saturated fragments move around each other to reveal beautiful patterns. The hearts of these larger than life characters are glimpsed, not gazed upon.

Extract

Besides, he felt worn out, exhausted; after the old people crawling around in the hall, over and under the table, bathed in soup, steeped in filth and saliva, like a Roman orgy or a witches' Sabbath, to have to face the sacristan's inquisition infuriated him.
Translated by Anne McLean with Anna Milsom
