Editorial Reviews

STARRED REVIEW

In an exquisite memoir that often reads like a novel, writerWilkes (In Mysterious Ways: The Death and Life of a ParishPriest) recounts and reflects upon his life as a Catholic.Although his journey includes a decade as a Protestant and ongoingdiscomfort with certain aspects of Catholicism, Wilkes deftly minesits imagery and its figures, particularly the Trappist monk ThomasMerton, a major and recurring influence. As Wilkes meanders througha life that begins in a working-class Cleveland neighborhood, hecandidly relates his passages of sin and saintliness, including aconversion-in-reverse when he gains fame as a writer and aninterlude following the end of his first marriage in which he livesamong the poor, caring for society's castoffs. Readers willexperience his confusion, the "decaying smell of [his] dying soul"and his triumphs as they wonder if the "it" he seeks will find himand whether he will marry again or become a monk. This is fine,engrossing reading for all who appreciate the struggle inherent inthe spiritual quest. (Publishers Weekly, January 2009)

"Paul Wilkes has written the first 21st-century Christianclassic. His In Due Season: A Catholic Life will rankalongside, not run second to, Thomas Merton's The Seven StoreyMountain. It is its companion volume. ? The bridge betweenideals that Wilkes builds with this book carries the AmericanCatholic story from the ghetto, through war, through Vatican II,through the hedonistic 1970s, through a changing church, throughthe ravages of affluence and easy money, to the questioning oftoday. ? In Due Season ranks alongside Merton's best becauseWilkes absorbed Merton, then moved forward with him, and ultimatelybeyond him."
--National Catholic Reporter, reviewed by Arthur Jones, publishedMarch 6, 2009.

"Paul Wilkes has written an honest and revealing memoir in whichnothing is held back....In Due Season excels on many levels.Wilkes is a felicitous writer who can be read for the simplepleasure of connecting with a prose artist."
--The Boston Globe (June 2009)
