The best part? Jeffrey Lewis will be joining in the discussion!
The Inquisitor's Diary is a meditation on some of life's big issues (morality, love, faith) told through the journal entries of Fray Alberto, a zealous member of the Spanish Inquisition in Mexico City. Denied his long-expected promotion and passage to Spain, he is instead sent north to retrieve heretics and bring them before a tribunal, and unexpectedly finds himself forming a bond with a mute prisoner. As his moral certitude unravels, Fray Alberto is faced with his greatest test of faith and confronts the ultimate question of what it means to live -- and die -- in a state of grace.
