"[A] ground-breaking study. . . . [Fisher illuminates] the conflicting definitions of Catholic differentness co-existing in early twentieth-century America, as well as the tentativeness and subjectivity of those definitions."--American Quarterly
"Fisher presents solidly useful results in this elegant analysis of selected figures in modern American Catholicism."--American Studies
"A fascinating book that puts into conversation certain figures (Day, Dooley, Merton, Kerouac) in the pluralistic strands of twentieth-century America in ways that illuminate each."--David Tracy
