Possibly the most sexually active gay priest ever, Jude Close never has a moment of doubt as he makes his conquests across the globe. It all begins in high school when Jude loses his virginity to the wild, sophisticated Treat. Nevertheless, Jude is presented as a "good" priest trying to win freedom's in the church for those like himself.


This novel throws a spotlight on the behind the scenes politics and shenanigans of a Church in transition to an uncertain future, and a priest who is certain of his goal to make the Church face the challenges and the necessary reforms to make a viable institution that the sexually emancipated might still be able to respect, while paralleling the growth and sophistication of gay club life and pornography.
