Publisher's Summary

In 1632, an entire convent in the small French village of Loudun was apparently possessed by the devil. After a sensational and celebrated trial, the convent's charismatic priest Urban Grandier - accused of spiritually and sexually seducing the nuns in his charge - was convicted of being in league with Satan. Then he was burned at the stake for witchcraft. A remarkable true story of religious and sexual obsession, The Devils of Loudun is considered by many to be Brave New World author Aldous Huxley's nonfiction masterpiece.

    "Awful"
    Would you try another book from Aldous Huxley and/or Matthew Lloyd Davies?

    The reading by Davies is fine (he does a pretty good job with French quotes, though he really doesn't need to say "Parree" instead of Paris). But Huxley's book is incredibly pompous, judgmental and unoriginal. Full of clichés. Alas, the poor man has not aged well.
