When Father Almida is summoned to an audience with the parish’s principal benefactor, a stand-in is found in Father Matamoros, a drunkard with an angel’s voice whose sung mass is mesmerizing to all. But Matamoros hides a darker side, and when the church’s residents throw a feast for him he encourages them to lose all their inhibitions and give free reign to their most Bacchanalian desires.

A satire on the iniquities of the Catholic church in Colombia, Good Offices is at once comic, surreal and startling, a novel that will linger long in the mind.
