From the Publisher
Annotation Martha Manning focuses on her Catholic upbringing, from her yearning to be a nun, through troublesome teenage years, to her self-realization as writer, wife, and mother. Manning examines the ways faith has impacted her life, and offers a portrait of Irish-American Catholicism.
Editors Note In a funny and poignant memoir, the author recounts her quintessentially Irish-Catholic upbringing and the ways it has shaped her adulthood, from her battles with her nun teachers to her search for the meaning of death. Reprint.
