Product description

Review

"a rich, seductive meld of characters real and fictive, of history and fancy" The New York Times

About the Author

James Carroll was raised in Washington, D.C., and ordained to the Catholic priesthood in 1969. He served as a chaplain at Boston University from 1969 to 1974, then left the priesthood to become a writer. A distinguished scholar-
in-residence at Suffolk University, he is a columnist for the Boston Globe and a
regular contributor to the Daily Beast.

His critically admired books include Practicing Catholic, the National Book Award winning An American Requiem, House of War, which won the first PEN/Galbraith Award, and the New York Times bestseller Constantine s Sword, now an acclaimed documentary.
