    Book details

During the reign of Pope John Paul II, relations between gays and the Catholic Church have hit an all time low. Infallible - A Papal Fantasy is a rollicking speculation on what might happen if a Pope were to decide to use his infallible authority to advance, instead of hindering, the cause of gay rights. "Infallible" mixes romance, sex, and murder with the Byzantine machinations of Vatican politics, as the newly elected Pope Patrick I is sent on a spiritual journey where he is subjected to the trials, tribulations and triumphs of gay life. Convinced that he has experienced a real epiphany, Patrick must now, using all of his substantial Papal powers, find a way to peacefully achieve Gods grand design. Faced with unrelenting opposition from within his own Vatican hierarchy, the Pope enlists the help of two young men: Randy Feigal - an AIDs activist and long-time political adversary from his hometown Boston, and Alberto Camello - a young Swiss Guardsman whos just beginning to question his own sexuality.The sides are drawn. Will the forces of traditional dogma win the day? Or will Patrick and his friends at last find a way to wrench the Catholic Church into the Twenty-first Century?

William Mott lives in Bellevue, Washington with his partner of twenty years - Robin, and their surrogate feline children Robespierre and Hatshepsut. As a youth, Bill spent time alter-boying at St. Gregorys Church in San Mateo, California. Much to his chagrin, he later returned to the demi-eccliastical life teaching for thirteen years at Notre Dame, an all girls Catholic high school in Belmont, California. Mr. Mott finally saw the errors of his ways and is now employed doing research for the King County Library System. In his spare time (thank you, Robin) he plays the piano, performs Gilbert and Sullivan, and enjoys collecting rare sheet music.

    This book really blew me away. It was recommended to me by a friend as a great summer beach book and she was right (altho' she did have to explain the title to me), I couldn't put it down! I especially enjoyed the hot romance between the guardsman and the activist (altho' some of it might make your mother blush). Totally interesting characters, fast-moving plot, and the ending left me with tears in my eyes. Book me on the next flight to Rome!

    This was a fun book to read after the main charaters where introduced and plot started. The charaters are rich and I hope the author writes a sequal as I want to see what new adventures awate them. This book also is a good resource for those who wonder how the Catholic church picks a new Pope. As this is likley to happen in the next few years this is a good refresher.

    Infallible had all the elements; stimulating story, entertaining characters with a story line that takes you around the world. I literally could not put this book down. Infallible had humor, mystery, and intrige- reminds me of "Tales of the City" by Armistead Maupin.
