Writing about reactionaries (Catholics), revolutionaries (Lies of Silence), and missionaries (Black Robe), Brian Moore has found and fixed the nexus between religion and politics. Now he squeezes that pink even more tightly, as his newest protagonist, a Catholic priest, becomes the rebel president of a destitute Caribbean nation. Moore reads from No Other Life at 7 p.m. at Chapters, 1512 K St. NW. FREE. (202) 347-5495. (MD)
