Earthly Powers by Anthony Burgess

A world-weary celebrity writer, Toomey, now in his eighties, narrates this novel. Through Toomey’s recall of the past, this inventive narrative explores the major events and characters of the century. Burgess displays his comic talent and imagination while playing with ideas of good and evil and exploring themes of universal significance.
Anthony Burgess was born in Manchester.
