The Cornishman is a brief glimpse into the life if a conflicted, closeted man. Anyone who has lived a "religious life" will appreciate what the protagonist experiences. 

Well written and true to life.

Sometimes less is more and this short story is a good example.   Set in 1907 in London we follow the protagonist on another journey into his personal hell.  
This is a very thought-provoking read and makes one wonder how much organized religion still has to answer for.  
Highly recommended.
