This is the story of four writers, Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, Flannery O'Connor, and Walker Percy. These four American Catholics were called the School of the Holy Ghost. Paul Elie tells these four writers' story as a pilgrimage from the God-obsessed literary past to the chaos of post-war American life. And it is a story about the power of literature to change-and to save-our lives.

"Beginning as four disconnected biographies, this book gradually reveals its theme: four significant mid-twentieth-century writers exploring their Catholic faith through their work. As Flannery O'Connor, Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, and Walker Percy come into their own as writers, one begins to see the connection. Lloyd James's clear, educated voice suits the scholarly text. Its richness of tone and clarity of elocution allow the listener to engage without distraction. Interestingly, James's attempts at accents are somewhat inconsistent. The Southern drawls of Georgia-born O'Connor and Mississippi-bred Percy are unbalanced by any flavor of French from Merton. R.L.L. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
