Synopsis of The Kingdom of the Wicked by Anthony Burgess:

A Roman saga, taking in the excesses of Tiberius, Caligula and Nero and an irreverent account of the early days of Christianity. Sadoc, a dying shipping clerk, sets down for future generations a tale of epic proportions: he is charged with recounting no less an event than the birth of Christianity.

Anthony Burgess (1917-1993) was one of the UK’s leading academics and most respected literary figures. A prolific author, during his writing career Burgess found success as a novelist, critic, composer, playwright, screenwriter, travel writer and poet. He also worked as a translator, broadcaster, linguist and educationalist.
