Product Description

Dorothy Day tells of her early life as a young journalist in the crucible of Greenwich Village political and literary thought in the 1920's, and of her momentous conversion to Catholicism that meant the end of a Bohemian lifestyle and common law marriage.

Day also chronicles her lifelong association with Peter Maurin and the genesis of the Catholic Worker Movement. Unstinting in her commitment to peace, nonviolence, raciaL justice, and the cause of the poor and the outcast, she became an inspiration to such activists as Thomas Merton, Michael Harrington and Cesar Chavez.

Publisher's Description

This inspiring and fascinating memoir, subtitled, “The Autobiography of the Legendary Catholic Social Activist,” The Long Loneliness is the late Dorothy Day’s compelling autobiographical testament to her life of social activism and her spiritual pilgrimage. A founder of the Catholic Worker Movement and longtime associate of Peter Maurin, Dorothy Day was eulogized in the New York Times as, “a nonviolent social radical of luminous personality.” The Long Loneliness recounts her remarkable journey from the Greenwich Village political and literary scene of the 1920s through her conversion to Catholicism and her lifelong struggle to help bring about “the kind of society where it is easier to be good.”

Author Bio

"Dorothy Day, is a modern Catholic saint in the tradition of St. Francis. Her book is an absorbingly well-written series of pictures of her work and that of those she has gathered around her connection with the Catholic Worker, its hospitality house and its community farm. I rejoice with the new hope for mankind because of the kind of work that she and her associates are doing."- Norman Thomas

Editorial Reviews

“Fascinating as personal history, important as a document in twentieth-century American social history.”
“Dorothy Day wanted to be good, and not just do good. . . . a fascinating memoir.”

    I knew very little about Dorothy Day before reading "The Long Loneliness" and what amount I knew, I found fascinating. I figured that her autobiography would be a good place to start to learn more and I was not let down. While this was written twenty years before her death, one learns so much about her life - about her childhood, her radical views on theology, life, politics etc as well as her daughter and Peter Maurin. While I don't agree with everything Dorothy Day did or supported, I still find her a captivating figure and one to look up to. For anyone interested in 20th century Catholicism, history, politics or wanting to just learn more about the infamous Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker movement, this book is for you.
