KIRKUS REVIEW

In stories by Ernest Hemingway, Morley Callaghan, Phyllis Bottome, Katherine Mansfield, Strong, Paul Horgan, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Peter Whiffen, Sean and others, Sister a new realism which is a landmark in writing about convents, monasteries and the daily routine of parish duties. In her introduction she welcomes this new trend to present nuns, monks, brothers and priests as they are leaching rapid addition to children in parochial schools, drinking proverbially in monastery kitchens, and occasionally jealous of each other. She points out how different these stories are from the highly romanticized and sometimes violent faocations of the short stories of the past. These short stories make good reading for Catholics and Protestants alike.
