American women writers explore the Catholic experience with humor, sensitivity, and passion in a unique collection of 52 pieces from women of various ethnic heritages. Authors include Mary McCarthy, Francine Prose, Mary Gordon, Louise Erdrich, Audre Lorde, and others. Although often funny, this anthology also reveals the tragedy of spirits broken by Catholicism’s narrow concept of womanhood.
