I love Kathleen Norris. She was the town librarian in the South Dakota town where I grew up, and I was fascinated even then by the fact that she was a writer (as was her brilliant and eccentric husband, David Dwyre). I used to go to her house to sell greeting cards just so I could peer into the life of these two intellectuals, settling for some reason in our little town. I was drawn to this book because of my own struggle with faith and my sense that she, too, has agonized over many of the same questions. Norris ultimately seems to embrace her faith and understand it in a way that I have not yet managed. My favorite is A Prayer to Eve, "mother of fictions and of irony."
