"The Virgin Mary has made an untoward appearance in Dublin. Just as Rupert Penrose, influential columnist and man of the world, is about to have his way with Attracta Dorris, the Mother of God is suddenly there in Rupert's bedroom, frightening the poor girl out of her wits and setting in motion an unlikely and earthshaking series of events. Is she real? Is she a hoax? Will Padre Destino, the urbane, agnostic papal nuncio, get to the heart of the mystery? Will the impending visit of the freewheeling, loose-cannon American Vice President, Honoria Houlihan, come off without bringing down the government? Mary Breasted's gift for poking fun where it hurts the most has produced an irreverent, irrepressible book. Ireland will never be the same."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
