This book has just been recommended high by A Common Reader, if I may be forgiven a shameless plug for a bookseller whose catalog selection always includes 98% great stuff for all ages & interests:

Their description:

> "The Life You Save May Be Your Own" by Paul Elie


> Discussing the lives and diverse works of four extraordinary Catholic

> writers of the 20th century -- Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, Flannery

> O'Connor, and Walker Percy -- Elie engages, in a nonsectarian way, all

> the large themes that inform our existence, whether we attend to them or

> not. Most highly recommended.

There is this difference between the growth of some human beings and that of others: in the one case it is a continuous dying, in the other a continuous resurrection. (George MacDonald, The Princess and Curdie)

Isn't narrative structure enough of an ideology for art? (Greg Wright)
