MEDIA REVIEWS
An inspired collection of short stories from prolific Catholic writers over the past 75 years, this compilation is highlighted by Richard Russo's memoir, 'The Whore's Child;' Andre Dubus's complex family tale, 'A Father's Story;' Philip F. Deaver's provocative story of a man looking for inner peace, 'Silent Retreats;' and classics from Flannery O'Connor ('The Displaced Person') and Mary Gordon ('Mrs. Cassidy's Last Year'). * Library Journal *
A must-read for anyone who likes a good story. ...Stories of this kind with their layers of meaning cry out to be discussed. * St. Anthony Messenger, March 2009 *
... this book is intended to introduce a major group of Catholic authors worth considering. It provides a need in anthologies that has not yet been addressed.... I would buy this text if I were looking for some challenging reading and I would recommend it as a text on a course about Catholic authors. * Xavier Review *
