    Secular humanism has triumphed. Everything the late Victorians and Edwardians believed would bring human happiness has been achieved: Technology has made it so no one needs to work for a living, the social sciences ensure a smooth-running social order, and, in the name of tolerance, religious beliefs have been uprooted and eliminated except for a single holdout - a largely discredited and rapidly shrinking Catholic Church. Yet people are unhappy.

    Il titolo originale di questo libro "None Other Gods" indica già che il romanzo è la storia di una conversione. Nel libro si tratta della conversione di un rampollo della nobiltà inglese a una vita in povertà (con un rosario in mano); nella vita dell'autore si tratta della sua conversione dal protestantesimo (fu arcivescovo di Canterbury) al Cattolicesimo.
