An award-winning writer delivers a major reckoning with religion,
place, and sexuality in the aftermath of 9/11
Hailed in "The Washington Post "as "one of the most eloquent and
probing public intellectuals in America," Richard Rodriguez now
considers religious violence worldwide, growing public atheism in
the West, and his own mortality.
Rodriguez's stylish new memoir--the first book in a decade from
the Pulitzer Prize finalist--moves from Jerusalem to Silicon
Valley, from Moses to Liberace, from Lance Armstrong to Mother
Teresa. Rodriguez is a homosexual who writes with love of the
religions of the desert that exclude him. He is a passionate,
unorthodox Christian who is always mindful of his relationship to
Judaism and Islam because of a shared belief in the God who
revealed himself within an ecology of emptiness. And at the center
of this book is a consideration of women--their importance to
Rodriguez's spiritual formation and their centrality to the future
of the desert religions.
Only a mind as elastic and refined as Rodriguez's could bind these
threads together into this wonderfully complex tapestry.
