Angels and saints have shaped our cultural history since biblical times. But what do we know about them? How many of them are there? And how do they communicate? Eliot Weinberger, the »polymath of U.S. literature« [Deutschlandfunk], explores the mystery of heavenly beings and their meanings. Discover whimsical facts, philosophies, and myths: »A fanciful, wickedly inventive and poignant conjuration«. [London Review of Books]
