Sample text

Paul Hoffman 29 the Redeemer would say. “Your souls, which should be as white as a turtle’s wing, are worse than the blacks and purples on this boy’s back. This is what all of you look like to God: purple and black. And if any one of you dies tonight, you don’t need me to tell you what line you’ll be forming. As for what’s waiting at the end of that line—there are beasts to eat you and shit you out and eat you yet again. ” Once, a visiting dignitary, one Redeemer Compton, who was op­ posed to Bosco, had witnessed this demonstration and also seen one of the beatings that had caused the bruises.

Do not ask the reason. ” And at this, Redeemer Compton, wiser for once than Bosco, held his tongue, but later he instructed two of his paid squealers at the Sanc­ tuary to pick up whatever they could about the purple-backed boy. “What if I should die tonight? What if I should die tonight? ” As Cale and the others muttered their way to bed, the chant that years of repetition had rendered almost empty of meaning renewed the dreadful power it had had over them as young 30 T H E L E F T H A N D of G O D children, when they would lie awake all night convinced that merely the closing of their eyes would see them feeling the hot mouth of the beast or hearing the charred clash of the metal oven doors.

Me too,” whispered Vague Henri. “Nearly threw up,” admitted Cale. ” “You’ll get used to it,” said Cale. ” “I have to fold the vestments after practice,” said Vague Henri. ” “Talking. You boys. ” In his usual, almost miraculous, way Redeemer Malik had appeared behind them. It was unwise to be doing anything wrong when Malik was around, because of his strange ability Paul Hoffman 33 to creep up on people. His unannounced taking over of the training session from Redeemer Fitzsimmons, known universally as Fitz the Shits because of the dysentery that had plagued him since his time in the Fen campaigns, was just bad luck.
