THE LIFE YOU SAVE MAY BE YOUR OWN An American Pilgrimage

by | Read by Lloyd James

Philosophy & Religion • 22.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

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. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
