That's not really true of Concerning the Eccentricities of Cardinal Pirelli.

The bit question in the book is whether the Cardinal will be removed from his diocese for baptising his rich parishioner's puppies. Plot spoiler: yes. He is not interested in boiling his prose down to hard diamond like nuggets. That's not really true of Concerning the Eccentricities of Cardinal Pirelli. It reads basically like bad fanfiction for the decadent movement.

Ronald Firbank (1886 to 1926, U. with an Irish grandfather) has long had a cult following. Firbank's prose style is very hard to describe. Concerning the Eccentricities of Cardinal Pirelli is my first Firbank. Susan Sontag in her "Notes on Camp" declared his novels part of the canon of high camp. He was compleletly devoted to the work of Oscar Wilde. Born into significant wealth, he never worked other than at his writing. I wish I would have read him decades ago. OK his style is weird, it is decadent, lush, lyrical and proably best enjoyed under the influence of the hash, one of Firbank's loves. I really liked it once I got used to it, which took a few pages.

Howard himself called Firbank’s Concerning the Eccentricities of Cardinal Pirelli the wittiest book ever written

A camp classic originally published in 1926, Ronald Firbank's novella relates the outrageous exploits of the eponymous Cardinal, including his willingness to baptise dogs and his rather suspicious fondness for choir-boys. Challenging and irreverent, Firbank's final novel is a daring and biting satire on the Catholic church.
