The Kingdom of the Wicked is one of Anthony Burgess's most ambitious novels. Its subject, nothing less than the first years of Christianity, recreated in vivid and meticulous detail.
Sadoc son of Azor, a retired shipping clerk lying diseased and dying on the outreaches of the Roman Empire, sets down for future generations a tale of epic proportions: he is charged with recounting no less an event than the birth of Christianity. And what an account it is - the son of the god of love was born into the kingdom of the wicked.
