WEST, Morris (Langlo)
(1916-)
   Australian novelist, in his early years a lay monk, and best known for novels like The Devil's Advocate (1959). In The Navigator (1976) a lost ISLAND is found in the South Pacific, and a UTOPIAN community is founded there. The Clowns of God (1981), set at the end of the century, deals in apocalyptic terms with a Pope convinced that the Second Coming is nigh.
