Mortals

Norman Rush

Ray Finch is a middle-aged Milton scholar and a CIA agent in Botswana. His doted-upon wife, Iris, may be an adulteress. And her physician, the quixotic Davis Morel, may be her lover. Mortals is a riotous political adventure, a meticulous portrait of a marriage and a richly ambitious novel of ideas.
