Literary Catholics II

November 20th, 2009

We've had two guests recently whose conversion to Catholicism is both surprising and literary.  Both came to their faith late in life, yet from very different places. First Anne Rice who, long before "Twilight"  first introduced us to vampires now turns her attention to Angel Time as the "personification" of her new found faith. Next, Mary Karr, who jump started a renaissance in memoir with "The Liars' Club" and then "Cherry" talks, in her latest memoir Lit, about her apocalyptic childhood and outlaw adolescence and how she overcame her feral upbringing to become an esteemed poet and professor and found the Catholic faith.

My conversations with Anne Rice.
