A Pilgrim Stranger

Posted on Mark's blog recently.

A Pilgrim Stranger | Mark Samuels


"Word up. The first revision of my full length novel, A Pilgrim Stranger, in the Trad-Catholic genre is almost complete. The thing is a searing fictional indictment of secularism and modernity. So, no surprises there.

I fear it’s a case of J.K.Huysmans meets Evelyn Waugh.

Raise a glass in its honour. Or not."


I wonder if this novel is weird fiction. " J.K.Huysmans meets Evelyn Waugh." It could have been worse. At least he didn't mention C.S. Lewis.

I find Mark's descent into superstition fascinating. I think he recounted that his psychotic break from reality happened in his late 20s. I am a fan of his fiction. Not so much of what he considers non-fiction. But I might read it.
