What our staff has to say: “A masterpiece of autofiction. Century spanning religious lust & obsession.” – Cleo
Lust, religious zeal, and heartache come together in this provocative novel about two infatuations, one between a man and his young lover in the late 20th century and another between a 15th-century maiden and Jesus Christ.
Margery Kempe is a tale of romantic obsession. It chronicles two relationships which take place in disparate worlds, separated by five centuries. The failed saint Margery Kempe lived in the fifteenth century, when she wrote what is believed to be the first autobiography. In Robert Glück’s Margery Kempe, the author’s love for a young man, L., frames the story of Kempe’s mythical sexual desire and emotional passion for Jesus.
