Priestdaddy - Patricia Lockwood

Staff Pick

So few people can say their father is a Catholic priest out loud. Patricia Lockwood's father is an angry gun-toting, Rush Limbaugh-listening, blustering, Catholic priest who likes to pad around the house in a giant pair of boxer shorts. With a wife and five children, he converted to Catholicism after watching The Exorcist. Her OCD mother is known for wearing a Danger Face, her hatred of nuns and her kindness. Patricia and her husband move in with them after health issues derail their plans and she starts writing.  Her observations are hilarious and her writing is stunning and poetic.
