A memoir and literary criticism from novelist Hiram Frederick "Rick" Moody III (1961-), known for The Ice Storm (1994) which was adapted to film. This volume takes its title from Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Minister's Black Veil, " which, according to Moody, is based on the true story a Moody ancestor who wore a veil throughout his adult life as penance for having accidentally killed a boyhood friend. Moody alternates between explaining Hawthorne's story, trips to research his colonial-era paternal heritage from Maine graveyards to old diaries, and his own legacy as heir to a melancholic family---the pained journey of his own life experiences. A thoughtful, sensitive, reflecting memoir intense with self-scrutiny. A lifting of his own black veil.
