HENRICUS ALBERTUS BOLI was born in 1783 in York, Penna., the son of a local physician and typefounder. He showed an early aptitude for literary studies, and at the age of eight astonished his Latin master by successfully declining three nouns previously regarded as indeclinable. About a year later, he published his first volume of verse, an epic poem in twenty-four books describing a journey from York to Hanover, Penna. Having established his reputation, Dr. Boli continued his literary pursuits. Shortly after graduating from the Central Pennsylvania School for Unusual Boys, he invented the letter M, the income from which was enough to relieve him from the necessity of remunerative labor. He therefore turned his attention to works of charity. Saddened by the plight of Portuguese refugees, he organized and supervised the construction of Portugal, where at last they might have a home of their own. Meanwhile he diverted himself by writing a number of popular novels under the pen name “Anthony Trollope.” At about the same time he founded his celebrated Magazine, whose flattering success continues to the present under his personal supervision.Présentation de l'éditeur :
Galahad Newman Bousted dedicates his life to evil at a young age. But will he succeed in his pursuit of pure wickedness, or will he be seduced by the many temptations to do good that stand in his way? Will he really carry out the monstrous crimes he has plotted?
Can he possibly get away with them?
The Crimes of Galahad is a new novel destined to stand with the works of Henry Fielding, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Amanda McKittrick Ros as a permanent contribution to the literature of the English-speaking world. In it, Dr. Boli has not been afraid to plumb the darkest depths of the human soul—and laugh at them.
