The failure of Humanism, explored through the lens of the great Sicilian master Antonello da Massina, is the theme of award-winning author Steve Katz's latest novel. A father and son both search for meaning in their lives. The father, obsessed with Antonello's lost painting of St Francis, gets lost along the way. When the son tries to find out what happened to his father, his discoveries turn out to be more than he can absorb. A double picaresque that takes turns through fantasy, sexual follies and wild historical and philosophical speculation, this is contemporary fiction at its best.
