Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

It is 1097, and a traveller arrives in the great, walled city of Antioch with a vision of a beautiful and mysterious geometric design that will change the lives of all those who see it. Pilgermann is a mesmerising recreation of the world of the Crusades, following its unlikely hero and those he meets on a journey of picaresque horror across a Europe of hatreds, visions and a desperate wish for salvation.

Critic reviews

"Superb.... Pilgermann is history, metaphysics, a tangle of mysteries, profound and simple." (Guardian)

"A dark treatise on the mysterious nature of things.... The world according to Pilgermann is a brutish place borrowing from Hieronymus Bosch, pilgrimage narrative, allegory and the historical novel." (The New York Times Book Review)

"A strange and beautiful work." (Evening Standard)
