9780829418132: Leaping: Revelations and Epiphanies

Doyle, an award-winning and nationally recognized Catholic writer, presents his collection of literary works. After more than twenty years of "diligent scribbling," author Brian Doyle, an award-winning Catholic writer and editor of Portland Magazine, collected over thirty of his essays and put them together in Leaping: Revelations and Epiphanies. From a series of seemingly incongruous musings, Doyle weaves a compelling tapestry of stories with spirituality as the common thread. Doyle writes eloquently about life and death, fear and faith, miracles and the mundane. In this compilation of literary writings about Catholicism, his children, birds, and cars, Doyle powerfully captures the Catholic lay spirit. Also included is a poignant memorial to the victims of September 11. Recalling his past, celebrating his present, and looking to the future, Doyle reminds us that by noticing the mysterious cycle of life we become aware of the blizzard of blessings that surrounds us. "Brian Doyle has a fine quick mind alert for anomaly and quirk--none of them beyond his agile pen. Leaping is informed throughout by wisdom, humor and affection, and by the ardor of his faith and love of family."

--Peter Matthiessen, author, The Snow Leopard "No one writes prose with the verve and honesty, the gusto and wit of Brian Doyle. Doyle's voice throughout this book captures the fiery beauty of language in all of its finely crafted, yet unbounded, music, vision, and surprise." --Pattiann Rogers, author, Song of the World Becoming: Poems, New and Collected, 1981-2001
