 Our Description

From the Loyola Classics series . . .

"New editions of acclaimed Catholic novels."

 

 

Edwin O'Connor

 

 

Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1962, this haunting novel shattered reigning cultural stereotypes of priests and parish life when it was first published. Father Hugh Kennedy is a recovering alcoholic, com­mitted to his vocation yet struggling with the demands of it. The Edge of Sadness is a sensitive portrait of both one man’s inner life and the mid-20th century trans-for­mation of ethnic Catholicism.

Reprinted in 2005.
