true inspiration

by anya w on Sep 2, 2010

In her autobiography, The Long Loneliness, Dorothy Day invites the reader into her world, to see, smell and feel that time in history and those places she intimately inhabited; Her story takes us to NYC in the first half of the 20th century, where in the company of the sick, the poor, the workers, the activists, artists and dreamers we meet the woman who embodied the Christian faith, the Catholic activist, who dying to herself gave birth to a community and a movement. Her life transcends human geography and history while her story gives them meaning.

Depression Heroine

by Jimayo on Jan 28, 2010

Dorothy Day's autobiography is unforgettable.A woman of utter integrity and honesty, she had such a capacity for love and acceptance of everyone she met. Through her 'Catholic Worker' paper and her organization she fed and sheltered thousands during the first Great Depression, lived with those she helped. Most remarkable woman of modern times. If you like this, read also Robert Coles' 'Dorothy Day - a Radical Devotion.'
