This book is a complete collection of Mariella Gable's essays on Catholic fiction. Her pioneering definition of Catholic fiction has broadened over the years, beginning in the 1940s. Not only do her essays speak to the history of American Catholicism but she also writes about such significant authors as J.F. Powers, Flannery O'Connor, Graham Greene, J.D. Salinger, John Updike and others. She also discusses Christian satirists, such as Orwell, Huxley, Amis and Spark, and the concept of work in Dante and Teihard de Chardin. Students and scholars of the literature of values and historians of American Catholicism will find this a useful work.
