Mexico: Editorial Joaquín Mortiz, 1973. First edition. Paperback. 165p., wrps. Very Good. Item #191994

This novel is many stories with a single origin, Catholicism and religious fervor; the secular authorities, accused of Jacobinism, find themselves repudiated by men and women governed by fear of hell, God and life. Opposed to ecclesiastical anti-communism was a priestly vocation in the sixties, the option of a Christianity in favor of the disinherited. Sheepfold undoubtedly synthesizes the recent history of the faith in Mexico, the transformations that the Church has been forced to live and the effects that this has had on the dogmatic. In his narrative, Vicente Leñero masterfully mixes the picaresque and the testimonial.
