Dorothy Day: Portraits
By: Rosalie G. Riegle
Both a revealing testimony to the complexity of one of the great Americans and a model for the kind of writing that could shed light on many more of our public figures, especially those we are inclined to romanticize. It is entertaining and enlightening at the same time. --Religious Studies Review
In this moving and entertaining work, drawn from the memories of family, friends, and colleagues who knew her best, Dorothy Day emerges as a woman of courage, humor, and love, who left an unforgettable mark on the lives of all she touched.
