The Vicar Woman

Emma Rendel
Emma Rendel

A female vicar arrives on a small island to take up a new post. It is a strange opportunity: the parish is brand new, and set up by the community itself, who have built themselves a church modelled on St Peter’s Basilica. The vicar is surprised and delighted by the enthusiastic welcome she receives.

The church is full day after day, and the parishioners compete for her attention. Not many are interested in discussing spiritual matters however, and as she gets to know them, the vicar becomes aware of a split in the community; a terrible secret that is not spoken of, but which plagues the island, pitting neighbour against neighbour. She hears whispers of a missing young girl whose parents died in a mysterious blaze, of secret abortions, and of a fearsome ghost.

What the villagers most want is absolution, but can the Vicar Woman provide it for them? The Vicar Woman is a strange and discomforting story, and a brilliant new work from one of the most original artists on the Cape graphic novel list.

Jonathan Cape, paperback, 176 pages, published May 2012
