One of the great novels of the 1930's, Such is My Beloved
recounts the tragic story of two down-and-out-prostitutes and the young priest who aspires to redeem their lives. The novel is at once a compassionate portrait of innocence and idealism and an emphatic condemnation of a society where the lines between good and evil are essentially blurred.
A richly textured exploration of love and sacrifice, of innocence and disillusionment, Such is My Beloved is widely considered Callaghan's finest novel.
