Promoted to the rank of Monsignor, Quixote and his friend Sancho, the ex-mayor of El Toboso and an avid Communist, set off on their travels in the rusty old car the call Rocinante. Together, they roam through modern-day Spain in a brilliant picaresque fable that, like Cervantes' classic, offers enduring insights into our life and times.
Cyril Cusack reads Grahame Greene’s moving, hilarious novel about a Catholic priest and his friend, a Marxist mayor.

Outstanding story and narrating.
I was recommended this book by a friend and someone else said that it would help to read the original Don Quixote, so I downloaded it, but to be honest, it's not my type of book.
The Monsignor Quixote can easily stand alone on it's own merits, and while those that have read the Don Q. will appreciate the various references to it, but I enjoyed the book with just the briefest references to the Don Q by way of explanation.
