"How do you maintain your faith?"

"I know God exists."

"How?"

"I know God exists. I touch him."

"Well...is he soft or hard?"
(not quoted verbatim)

These kind of witty exchanges are common in this humorous novel by English author Graham Green. A retelling (continuation? spinoff?) of the Don Quixote myth, the novel is an account of the end of the life of a parish priest (monsignor) in Spain, including his struggles with faith and his attempts to explore what the world has to offer. The Sancho character is a former mayor and a devout communist. The two go on a road trip with a lot of funny incidents, and get involved in lots of discussions about communism, Christianity and Don Quixote. Since it's very dialogue heavy, it can get a bit slow at times. But overall, it was a very good read and a moving story which will probably have more to offer to those intimately familiar with the subject matter being discussed.
