The Body of This gets a thoughtful review…

…from New Blackfriars Review:

“In this these stories belong to the quest for an earthy Catholicism, an appropriation in art and literature of the great central truth that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”

Do go read the whole thing. And then maybe buy the book!


  1. Matt (Slainte Joe) says

    Thanks for the tip on the book. I'm going to pick up a copy.

    At the risk of acting like one of those odious "literary types," that first reader review at Amazon is a hoot. It reminds me of the comment someone once made to me about Percy's The Second Coming: "That's not a Catholic book. He had SEX with that girl!"

  2. Matthew Lickona says

    Yeah, that pretty much hits it. I hope you enjoy the McNabb.

  3. I already have the book but the comments here sent me to check out the amazon reviews. I did have to give the first reviewer a "this review helped me" nod, since she pretty much slathered the book with backhanded compliments. Yeah, based on her review, I certainly would have purchased the book. If I didn't own it already.
