This session’s book is ‘A Burnt-Out Case’ (1960) by Graham Greene.
‘A fascinating study of the relationship of suffering, especially freely accepted suffering — to wholeness. Greene has set his novel in a remote African leprosery run by nuns and priests. They have as their unexpected guest an internationally famous architect named Querry who arrives incognito, trying to escape as far as possible from his past.’ New York Times
