Surely one of the major achievements in fiction in recent years.” â Joyce Carol Oates Â When old friends Henry and Cato reunite after years apart, they quickly become embroiled in the drama of each other’s lives. Henry, who has just returned to England as the sole heir to his recently deceased brother’s estate, quickly begins to uncover secrets buried long ago. Meanwhile, Cato, a Catholic priest, has fallen in love with the criminal Beautiful Joe, and struggles to reform him despite the thief’s continual efforts to rob him. Â A stirring portrait of morality and redemption, Henry and Cato is an insightful look at coping with the crises that come with life’s unexpected changes.
