reviewed The Ear of the Heart. April 02
The Ear of the Heart
Clergy vocation stories make for some fascinating reading, because from a secular point-of-view, the religious choices that people make seem so out-of-whack with what people in every day society normally …

In 2004 when I became a baptized Catholic, I had befriended a priest from my local parish. He was a gentle man with a real depth and a genuine appreciation for a good laugh. In truth, he was one of the …

Bakhita: From Slave to Saint
Forgiving a cruelty, be it large or small, can be a very hard thing for people to do. Sometimes people find it is easier to hold on to an all consuming grudge rather than pardon the inflictor of the …
reviewed A Prayer Journal. February 23
A Prayer Journal
Before Flannery O'Connor hit her literary zenith with her stellar short stories, letters, criticism, book reviews and two novels, she had, in the quiet backdrop of her unassuming life, a tattered …
reviewed Library of America: Shirley Jackson. November 21, 2013
Library of America: Shirley Jackson
The Library of America edition of the Novels and Stories of Shirley Jackson is certainly a must-have for any novice writer or true appreciator of the genre of the gothic and psychological. It is a spot-on …

Death in Salem: The Private Lives behind the 1692 Witch Hunt
If one has never read anything before on the Salem witch trials, Death in Salem would be a good book to start off with, because it is not an academic book, per se, with a plethora of narrowly focused …
reviewed St. Maria Goretti: In Garments All Red. November 10, 2013
DB7E4D2F68DC65A9E76F307593255BA
Fr. Poage's short biography on the life and times of St. Maria Goretti is a remarkably in-depth work, maybe even more so, because the book does not even comprise 100 pages. It is written in a clear …
reviewed The Complete Stories of Flannery O'Co.... August 28, 2013
The Complete Stories of Flannery O'Connor
In trying to expertly sum up the brilliance that is illustrated in The Complete Stories of Flannery O’Connor, I am speechless, because I feel incapable of adequately conveying to potential readers …
reviewed The Wapshot Chronicle. June 23, 2013
The Wapshot Chronicle
John Cheever's The Wapshot Chronicle, was, for me, an unfortunately underwhelming novel that was beautifully crafted. It was filled with rounded characters, a wonderful and sometimes-not-so sublime …
