9780201079746: Dorothy Day: A Radical Devotion (Radcliffe Biography Series)

Robert Coles first met Dorothy Day over thirty-five years ago when, as a medical student, he worked in one of her Catholic Worker soup kitchens. He remained close to this inspiring and controversial woman until her death in 1980. His book, an intellectual and psychological portrait, confronts candidly the central puzzles of her life: the sophisticated Greenwich Village novelist and reporter who converted to Catholicism; the single mother who raised her child in a most unorthodox ”family”; her struggles with sexuality, loneliness, and pride; her devout religious conservatism coupled with radical politics. This intense portrait is based on many years of conversation and correspondence, as well as tape-recorded interviews.

From Publishers Weekly:

Pulitzer Prize-winning Coles ( Children of Crisis ) here presents Dorothy Day, founder of the newspaper the Catholic Worker , whom he acknowledges as spiritual mentor. "Day's compelling point of view is expressed in story format in an unconventional biography that is appropriate for the sensual woman many consider a saint," wrote PW.
Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc.
