"I was born in Paris at the age of twelve." So begins Paradise Lost, the
novel that turns Milton upside down. It is a comic epic about an agnostic
man who idolizes women, resists authority of all kinds, and insists that the
defining feature of human beings is their fallibility. After an absence of
twenty-three years, Lewis returns to Paris trying to rediscover his boyhood
self.
