Catholic Fiction?

Commonweal, which my Dad used to read with great interest back when he was a fiery undergraduate at Siena College (publishing an underground newspaper, no less!), and which no doubt deserves praise that is both less faint and more recent than that, is returning to its old practice of publishing short fiction in its pages. They got Alice McDermott! And to celebrate, they’re putting it up online for free!
