Product description

Review

'Funny, moving and powerful.' --Nick Robinson

'Mark Dowd relates his struggles and triumphs with such levity and charm that it feels like correspondence from an old friend. It's fashionable to want to know how gay people feel, but perhaps less so to explore the mind of a sometimes struggling but always persisting Catholic.' --Matthew Parris

'How could you not love a book that finds room in its massive heart for both Oscar Romero and for Manchester's greatest drag queen, Foo Foo Lammar?' --Frank Cottrell Boyce

About the Author

Mark Dowd is an award-winning broadcaster and journalist who has worked for the BBC, Channel 4, The Times and the Guardian. His cutting-edge documentaries include Queer and Catholic, Abused and Catholic, Tsunami: Where was God? and God is Green. Dowd was raised a Roman Catholic and studied to be a priest at Blackfriars, Oxford before choosing a career in journalism.
