Francis, the Holy Jester (A Novel About St. Francis). Edited by Mario Pirovano. Book. Hardcover. 128 pages. Published by Hal Leonard.
“Fo emulates the jesters of the Middle Ages in scourging authority and upholding the dignity of the downtrodden.” – Nobel Prize Committee
These fables to spark the imagination, challenge the conscience, and delight the soul. Greed and corruption are Fo's irreverent subjects for this satirical Fellini-esque provocation. Fo convenes courtiers, popes, cardinals, generals, peasants and one man who despite his own earthly appetites and desires becomes a saint. “Imagine” wrote The New York Times about Fo, “a cross between Bertolt Brecht and Lenny Bruce, and you may begin to have an idea of the scope of Fo's anarchic wit."
