Short Description

A paperback edition of a novel first published in 1964 which presents a portrait of one man's possessed will, and of the towering folly he creates.

Full Description

The vision that drives Dean Jocelin to construct an immense new spire above his cathedral tests the limits of all who surround him. The foundationless stone pillars shriek and the earth beneath them heaves under the structure's weight as the Dean's will weighs down his collapsing faith. Meanwhile, the towering spire casts a shadow of dread on all those who behold it.
