Monsignor Quixote by Graham Greene

"Monsignor Quixote" is a modern take on the classic Don Quixote tale, set in post-Franco Spain. The story follows a village priest who is elevated to the rank of monsignor through a clerical error, and his friend, the town's ex-mayor who is a staunch communist. The unlikely pair embarks on a journey across Spain, engaging in philosophical debates about faith, politics, and life. The journey and their friendship mirror the adventures of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, with the narrative exploring the absurdities and contradictions of life, religion, and politics.
