Author: Patricia Lockwood
Review by: Brookhouse
Bizarre memoir by a poet who,
after some financial reverses, returns with her husband after 10 years,
to live with her parents. Her father was a Lutheran minister with a wife
and five kids who converted to Catholicism and was permitted to become a
priest. He mostly is sent to relieve priests who are sent away because
of sexual improprieties. The hierarchy assumes he is safe because he is
married. He is neither fatherly or priestly.
Sometimes funny, but strange.
