Format: Paperback
I first read William Miller's biography of Dorothy Day in 1984, a few years after it was published. I immediately grew to have a great appreciation for this complex woman who contributed so much to the Catholic social conscience of the United States. Her life is botha witness to Jeusu Christ and a challenge to live the gospel radically. Miller was a personal friend of Dorothy Day and his work was written a few years after her death. The book contains many details about her early life, conversion, and her work with Peter Maurin establishing The Catholic Worker movement including the renowned newspaper and houses of hospitality. Her pro-labor and anti-war activities are also chronicled. Miller also mentions Day's connections with a number of well known luminaries such as Thomas Merton, Dan and Phil Berrigan, and her altercations with Cardinal Spellman. This book is a fascinating examination of a great woman and a slice of Catholicism that is often ignored.
