The Shoes of the Fisherman is set a decade or more into the future, a time when the world is on the brink of war due to a Chinese-Soviet feud over trade restrictions brought against China by the U.S. This has resulted in a widespread famine. At the same time, Ukrainian Archbishop Kiril Lakota is being set free after twenty years in Siberia as a political prisoner. After being brought to Rome by Fr. David Telemond, a troubled young priest, Lakota is given an immediate audience with the Pope, who elevates him to Cardinal Priest. When the Pontiff suddenly dies, Lakota's genuine character and unique life experience move the College of Cardinals to elect him as the new Pope. But Pope Kiril I must now not only deal with his own self-doubt and the struggle of his friend Fr. Telemond, who is under scrutiny for his beliefs, but also find a solution to the crisis in China.

Transpacific or Transatlantic Traffic? Australian Books and American Publishers David Carter , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Reading Across the Pacific : Australia-United States Intellectual Histories 2010; (p. 339-359)
'This paper will attempt to describe the determining factors and structural patterns of relations between Australian books and American publishers from the 19th century to the present. Its central question will be: how did 'Australian books' find their way to American publishers? Can we discern any distinctive patterns over time or for particular genres, or simply an accumulation of one-off cases? To what extent, if at all, did the traffic in Australian books depend on cultural symmetries? Did Australian books travel as Australian or British books? In what ways were they dependent upon relations between Australian (or British) publishers or literary agents and their American counterparts? What role did international copyright regimes or trade agreements play? And how might the American connection change our understanding of 'Australian literature'?' (Author's abstract)
