By Michael Arditti (Arcadia £1. By Clare Colvin for MailOnline Updated: 13:37 EST, 18 May 2009. The clashing beliefs of this intellectual but dysfunctional family are at the heart of Arditti's compelling sixth novel which tackles contemporary questions of liberalism versus fundamentalism, tolerance versus bigotry. Clement is attacked by traditionalists when he portrays a naked Christ for the stained-glass window of a cathedral, and is pilloried by the Press for being gay. His model, a political refugee from Algeria, is refused asylum and deported to an uncertain fate, while the rift between Clement and Susannah deepens when they are faced with the terminal illness of their father.
Arditti, like Trollope, writes fiction filled with wit and acute social observation, all placed in a religious setting. Yet there are times when The Enemy of the Good does stretch the reader's credulity. As a sweeping family saga whose plot manages to incorporate gay characters, domestic violence, the Holocaust, single mothers, stepchildren, bullying, prison, HIV and even dodgy imams, it does sometimes feel as if it is the creation of a scriptwriters' conference rather than an adept novelist. Arditti is to be applauded for tackling a subject that is so often ignored. A large proportion of Britons do hold religious beliefs, and fiction mostly ignores that.
