THE ADVENTURES OF FATHER SILAS (originally published as Le Portier des Chartreux) first appeared in 1742 and was probably written by the French lawyer, Beauregard de Farniente, whose aim seems to have been to expose the licentious practices of some of the unmarried clergy in 18thcentury France. It is possible that this book may have been an influence on the later writings of the Marquis de Sade. FLESH AND BONE by Henry Crannach is an entirely different sort of story, for it concerns the problems faced by a devout nun when she finally comes to the ccnclusion that she is not destined for a life of celibacy. The book is a sort of La Dolce Vita in that it exposes the almost meaningless lasciviousness of the nobility and members of the "new religion" of psychiatry. The struggles and desires of the noble, Count Orso del Fabrro, the psychiatrist, Dottore Maltini, the priest, Father Justinian, and the nun, Sister Dorothea, are all woven together into a fabric of love and tragedy, and the whole is related in a lively, sensitive way.
