This novel won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 195. An allegorical story of World War I, set in the trenches in France and dealing ostensibly with a mutiny in a French regiment, it was originally considered a sharp departure for Faulkner. Recently it has come to be recognized as one of his major works and an essential part of the Faulkner oeuvre. Faulkner himself fought in the war, and his descriptions of it "rise to magnificence," according to The New York Times, and include, in Malcolm Cowley's words, "some of the most powerful scenes he ever conceived."

Jacob Ericson is a quiet, kind and somewhat simple man who works as a ranch hand for crotchety Professor Carter and his crippled daughter, Sharon, in California's Mojave Desert in the 1920s. Jacob is a good man, genuine, honorable, but hardly extraordinary–until he miraculously heals a dying calf with his hands. However, while he is content to cure the town's animals, it isn't long before he is persuaded to use his gift in other ways. When Sharon, whom he adores, begs him to heal her leg, he cannot deny her. His acquiescence causes them both to be exploited. Sharon runs away to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams of stardom. Jacob follows her, hopeful that they will meet again. And they do–as miserable performers in a seedy stage show. While they plan their escape from the dreary stage life, Jacob is asked to heal a self–absorbed young millionaire. And with his assent, Jacob's plans and all of his dreams begin to crumble. Written in tight, vivid, and seamlessly crafter prose, this previously unpublished tale by two of the greatest storytellers of the twentieth century shows the dangers a magical gift holds for even the noblest of characters.

Father Samuel Harbinger says goodbye to his friends and pet lion, Banda. As pastor of the remote Kenyan village of Lipoppo, he has been called to Rome to become a bishop and almost from the first moment that he steps off the plane in Rome, he is embroiled in controversy. He dances with an irate Pope, lends his cassock to a woman so she can satisfy the dress requirements for entrance to Saint Peter's Cathedral, and argues with conservative Cardinal Martin Jensen over allowing animals at mass. He shocks the Vatican by describing the governance of the Catholic Church as one of co-popes, the laity and the Holy Father. But, the controversy that surrounds Harbinger is not limited to the Catholic Church. He wins the Nobel Peace Prize, addresses the general assembly of the United Nations, and receives an honorary degree from Harvard University. When the Pope suddenly dies, the College of Cardinals gathers in Rome to choose his successor. With Bishop Harbinger back in Rome, controversy enters once again, as those in the Sistine Chapel convene to elect the new Pope.

Revolution rocks and rolls. An ex-TV star seizes power and tries to turn daily life into an endless film. Temporary People is a political fable of the first order. Set on the island of Bamerita, a country whose “history is like the rim of a wheel made to turn round and round, our political cycles nothing if not redundant,” Gillis’s third novel, following Walter Falls and The Weight of Nothing, Temporary People explores the human condition in all its most vulnerable exposures. A brilliant send up of modern life turned inside out by the inescapable powers of history and fate, filled with pathos and humor, Gillis deftly explores the complexities of survival and choice in a world perpetually on the verge of going mad. Sharp and satirical, a breathtakingly paced romp, the end will leave you drop-jawed and wanting more. Temporary People is a book for the ages and once again Gillis delivers.
