Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
“A realistic Christian novel of hope in a non-Christian age.”— New England Quarterly “A deeply felt and eloquently expressed work . . . A quiet, gentle novel of considerable insight and charm . . .”— Library Journal
“O’Connor succeeds in delineating poignantly the overwhelming spiritual storms of the soul which assail the conscientious clergyman.”— The Christian Century  Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction   In this moving novel, Father Hugh Kennedy, a recovering alcoholic, returns to Boston to repair his damaged priesthood. There he is drawn into the unruly world of the Carmodys, a sprawling, prosperous Irish family teeming with passion and riddled with secrets. The story of this entanglement is a beautifully rendered tale of grace and renewal, of friendship and longing, of loneliness and spiritual aridity giving way to hope.

Review:

Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for literature in 1962, this haunting novel shattered reigning cultural stereotypes of priests and parish life when it was first published. Father Hugh Kennedy is a recovering alcoholic, committed to his vocation, yet struggling with the demands of it. The Edge of Sadness is a sensitive portrait of both one man’s inner life and the mid-20th century transformation of ethnic Catholicism.
