The monastery of St James the Less is due for closure. It has sat in the Arabian desert for too long, apparently. But Abbot Peter, sent to oversee its demise, isn't so sure. He finds strange life in this sanctuary for the desperate. So St James carries on; and as the battered make their way to its sun-baked door, it appears as just another refuge for those who seek retreat and withdrawal from the world's madness. Until, that is, the arrival of the bully Skarit. Then everything changes, and what once was, is no longer so. Bad things can create friction between people; they can even create nightmares. But can they create anything good? It proves a supreme test for Abbot Peter. And for those who have to live with him. Set under a burning sun in the middle of nowhere, Another Bloody Retreat is a book for any who have wished to break free and get away from it all.

    Abbot Peter, my favourite fictional character of all time, returns to his desert monastery. If you thought nothing much ever happens in a monastery prepare to be surprised, amused, moved and entertained. On every page of this remarkable book there is a masterpiece of comic timing, black humour and/or characters that will ring (often unwelcome) bells. Highly recommended.
