  • The Translation of Father Torturo is an amazing book which allows us to follow the formative years of the good Father Torturo In light of just having finish Brendan Connell s most excellent Cannibals of West Papua , I felt I needed to re read the origins story again as I had forgotten some of the key elements of Torturo s history We follow Torturo from a young orphaned boy through his educational years and past the critical decision point of becoming a hit man, as was his uncle who raised him, o [...]


  • Father Xaviero Xaviero Torturo is, like many of the protagonists in Connell s later collection Unpleasant Tales, a man obsessed with change, though the changes he desires extend beyond himself and into the world in which he lives He is a priest who, tired of being the begrimed receptacle for the offences of others, applies the philosophy, dedication and ruthlessness of the family trade assassination to his work As a child he had been brutal, a kicker of cats, a resolute swatter of flies His pare [...]


  • This is a nimble and quick novel, and at times very funny Here the author uses the voice of a modern novelist A significant change from the style encountered in his contributions to various anthologies from Ex Occidente Zagava and Tartarus Press In the aforementioned anthologies Connell s style has much in common with the decadent movement Unsure of the author s chronological output I surmise this could simply be a natural evolution in style Nonetheless, The Translation Of Father Torturo remain [...]


  • Another fine book by Brendan Connell, who has over the last year or so become one of my favorite contemporary writers More about Father Torturo later this week, but for the time being, when I use the phrase wickedly good to describe the book, the emphasis is placed fully on the word wickedly.

  • I won this book through and could not wait to read it I love mysteries I just found that I could not get into the story no matter how I tried I would read and put it down I was determined to finish the book no matter what It was a little squeamish for me So I had a hard time with it The author is quite good at his writing and describing what was going on.The main character Father Torturo is a very manipulative person for a priest He felt that he should be high in the priesthood and he also thoug [...]


  • An achievement in esoteric fiction.One of the most interesting reads I ve had in a long time Taking the esoteric side of Christianity and layering it with modern Catholicism with a tinge of the diabolical It s a quick read overall.


  • A dark, interesting, albeit somewhat silly book It is certainly not without its flaws, but over all well worth the few hours it took me to read.




  • Wild oscillations between good and evilThis is an exciting and highly erudite story of magical realism in the Catholic world Read it with a strong stomach.
