When 17-year-old Mariette Baptiste enters a convent in 1906, she seems the model of piety. But she quickly grows more zealous, eventually displaying the wounds of Christ on the cross. Right up to its final jolting glimpse of Mariette in middle age, Mariette in Ecstasy is an astonishing novel, maybe even a great one. A+
