Pilgermann (Novel, 1983)

Narrated by the disembodied spirit of Pilgermann, a European Jew, the novel opens with the newly castrated Pilgermann having a vision of Christ after being mutilated by a gentile mob for being caught sleeping with a merchant's wife. Christ tells Pilgermann that he must make his way to Jerusalem where he will meet with Sophia.

Bloomsbury Publishing have released almost all of Russell Hoban's adult novels as e-books for Kindle.
