Hadrian the Seventh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hadrian the Seventh (also known as "Hadrian VII") is a 1904 novel by the English novelist Frederick Rolfe, who wrote under the pseudonym "Baron Corvo".

And it's an engrossing one at that: the writing is evocative in some places and wryly amusing in others. The author also switches styles frequently, at times even approaching the dizzying info-bullets reminiscent of cyberpunk. The depiction of Torturo's character is also not as satisfying as it could be: we can see he's a pretty nasty piece of work, but he's also evidently charismatic; however, I felt as though I was learning about that charisma second-hand, rather than experiencing it personally.

It is always a pleasure to be able to recommend an author whose work might otherwise be ignored, and this is no exception. And it seems churlish to quibble like that about a well-written book that has been put together with care and attention by Slovenian publisher Grafitisk ( is a wonderful artefact as well as a great piece of fiction). Sometimes the mannered style goes that bit too far, and one starts to feel like skimming (the episode of an elaborate banquet with an absurd number of dishes springs to mind).

All good fun, eh? Well, actually, it is pretty good fun (for the reader, if not for the protagonist!): the voice is recognisably Connell's, but the tone is more light-hearted. The thoughts we're made privy to are generally those he speaks out loud (and who's to judge how reliable they are?). Several times, my expectations of what would happen were confounded, which can only be a good thing. So, when he e-mailed me to ask if I'd like to read two of his books for review, I was intrigued enough to say yes.

    The Translation of Father Torturo, Brendan Connell

    But perhaps that's the point: that Dr Black is the kind of character who travels through stories, observing (though nevertheless having an effect on what he observes). One has a constant sense of watching the action rather than inhabiting it; even the account of Torturo's transplant operation reads like something from a medical textbook. Please choose whether or not you want other users to be able to see on your profile that this library is a favorite of yours.

    Normally, this would work to a book's detriment, but Connell keeps us reading, for that most primal of reasons: to find out what happens next. And we have to rely on Connell for that, because Torturo himself is not much help in that regard. That said, as these two books amply demonstrate, he is also worthy of attention in the present.

    Xaverio Torturo, seemingly a model of spirituality - pious, learned, and athletic to boot. He also marks himself out as a writer worthy of attention in the future. Naturally, things don't quite go according to plan, what with Dr Black having all his supplies stolen, becoming caught up in the coils of a snake, and being hauled in front of a firing squad by the local People's Revolutionary Army. All good fun, eh? Well, actually, it is pretty good fun (for the reader, if not for the protagonist!): the voice is recognisably Connell's, but the tone is more light-hearted.
