The Triumph of Life, Love, and Being
by Austin P. Torney
In a monastical village, a monk and a nun to-be exchange notes, via the books they send back and forth, for illustration and editing, they noting the forbidden knowledge therein. When the monastical village burns to the ground, they embark on a picaresque journey, in which they employ their wisdom, encountering various and sundry situations. They carry a special, speaking, book.
