Welcome to Quick Lit, where we share short and sweet reviews of what we’ve been reading lately.
This month several long-awaited library holds came in. Real life bumped a spiritual memoir to the top of my reading list. And I was underwhelmed by a much-anticipated new release, but I’m carefully recommending it anyway (with caveats).
Fans of the author's first memoir Pastrix won't want to miss this new one: Bolz-Weber delivers another wildly irreverent, profanity-filled spiritual memoir about how God chooses who he chooses, even if those people seem to us like the most unlikely candidates. Poignant and hilarious stories give life to this concept: in my favorite chapter, Bolz-Weber and her "token" conservative friend fire off rifles at the local shooting range. The second half lags a little but I'm glad I stuck it out.More info →
