Seminarians | Granta


Marcos Villatoro

‘The seminary building, parked smack in the middle of the campus, looked west to Davis Hall (women), south to another women's dorm building, and east to the vocationless, unharnessed men of Beast Hall. What did they expect, with so many earthly reminders of flesh around us? Out of the fourteen young men who discerned the call, few, very few, made it to ordination.’

Marcos Villatoro’s most recent novel is Home Killings: A Romilia Chacon Mystery. ‘Seminarians’, published in Granta 80, was taken from The Priests: A Sexual Memoir.
