"James Carroll has written a novel with the breathtaking pace of a thriller and the gravitas of a genuine moral center--as if John LeCarre and Graham Greene collaborated to produce Warburg in Rome"—Mary Gordon, author of Pearl and The Love of My Youth



                WARBURG IN ROME is “a standout...[James Carroll] has knitted his knowledge of the church and his matured powers as a novelist to create his most splendid work of fiction to date.”
