An fairly uncommon Amis title, an alternative-world novel where the year 1976 is not quite the same. There has been a slight alteration in history involving Catherine of Aragon, Martin Luther, Thomas More and others. A Machiavellian Pope sits on the throne of England, and a young choirister by the name of Hubert Anvil, who possesses a voice from heaven, must decide whether the operation (the alteration) to keep his voice thus is all it’s cracked up to be.
