Item description for Cónclave by Carlos Gumpert Roberto Pazzi...

Conclave tells the story of what goes on inside the Vatican when the cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church gather in complete secrecy after the death of the current pope to elect a new spiritual leader. As the bizarre, almost chimerical events of the conclave stretch from weeks into months, the elderly clergy begin plotting their escape from the bitter isolation required by papal law. Composed in prose so rich and finely tuned-and seamlessly translated by Stransky-that readers can smell the incense, the novel ends when Pazzi's assembled cardinals at last elect a most unlikely candidate. Description in Spanish: "Pasan los das, pero los cardenales reunidos en Roma no logran ponerse de acuerdo en la eleccin del nuevo papa... Las televisiones comienzan a prestar poca atencin al cnclave: las fumatas de la Sixtina ya no generan audiencia. De repente, se filtran extraas indiscreciones: un cardenal ha muerto de forma misteriosa, otro parece haber intentado fugarse, mientras plagas terrorficas y oscuros sortilegios amenazan la paz de la pa asamblea. Sin embargo, lo que de verdad est sucediendo, paralizando la suprema eleccin, escapa a todo pronstico... El cardenal Ettore Malvezzi, hilo conductor de la historia, espa los sucesos hasta el sorprendente final. La cautivadora novela de Roberto Pazzi convierte una cita histrica de Occidente en la ocasin perfecta para realizar una indiscreta radiografa del Vaticano."
