Synopsis

'Then he saw the barrel of a gun aimed dead on target - not at him, as he might have expected, but at the clergyman's back.'



Set in a crumbling Spanish mansion, this gloriously comic and gothic novel follows the fortunes of an innocent young priest as he enters a world of moral decadence, sexual intrigue and corruption.



A new series of twenty distinctive, unforgettable Penguin Classics in a beautiful new design and pocket-sized format, with coloured jackets echoing Penguin's original covers.

The countess Emilia Pardo Bazan was born in 1851 and married at the age of sixteen. But rather than following the usual path of an upper-class woman of the time, she became interested in politics and philosophy, separated from her husband, travelled widely, had an affair with the writer Benito Perez Galdos and started writing herself. The House of Ulloa (1886) is generally considered to be her masterpiece. She died in 1921.
