KIRKUS REVIEW

The biography of a thought -- born in the brain of a Frenchman and the heart of the author as she covered a press assignment of the hunger march on Washington in 1932. A convert to Catholicism, she could not join forces with the Communists but readily fell for Peter Maurius' ideas to start a labor paper, hold round table discussions, open Houses of Hospitality, similar to the Hospices of Europe and finally to start farming communes. The book is a sketchy diary of Dorothy Day's work as editor and supervisor of this steadily growing movement to aid the Catholic Worker.
