No Longer at Ease

Novel's title

The book's title comes from the closing lines of T. S. Eliot's poem, The Journey of the Magi:

We returned to our places, these Kingdoms, But no longer at ease here, in the old dispensation, With an alien people clutching their gods. I should be glad of another death.
