SECRET INFORMATION

A study of a character, on the surface solid, admirable, likeable, underneath cursed with a vice which undermines his character, a passion for pornography, which once detected results in shame and fear which destroy him. The man is a clergyman -- and the inadvertent use of some words recognizably from Frank Harris give him away to a mundane elderly Londoner, who confronts him with his suspicions. In his efforts to deny the charge -- and to rid himself of the library he has collected, he recognizes his own weakness and goes into a brotherhood to escape the consequences. Not a story in the usual sense, but a detailed character study.
