The Bishop's Daughter Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paul Moore's vocation as an Episcopal priest took him'"with his wife Jenny and a family that grew to nine children'"from robber-baron wealth to work among the urban poor of postwar America, prominence as an activist bishop in Washington during the Johnson years, leadership in the civil rights and peace movements, and two decades as the bishop of New York. The Bishop's Daughteris a daughter's story of that complex, visionary man: a chronicle of her turbulent relationship with a father who struggled privately with his sexuality while she openly explored hers, and a searching account of the consequences of sexual secrets. With a depth of questioning that recalls James Carroll's An American Requiem, this memoir engages the reader in the great issues of American life: war, race, family, sexuality, and faith.

Synopsis:

"An eloquent argument for speaking even the most difficult truths." --

Synopsis:

"An unsparing portrait of a glamorous but elusive father and his daughter's search for the truth about his secret life."'"Sylvia Nasar
