This surprising book details the long-time relationship between a British Benedictine monk and a fervent, then lapsed, Catholic. “Don’t tell the abbot,” the gentle monk sometimes says when he offers his advice to the struggling writer. Despite his sometimes “indifference to the divine,” Hendra maintains the friendship. Although Hendra as narrator is a bit breathy at times, I love his intonations of Father Joe, the little stutters fondly recalled by “Tony Dear,” as he was often addressed by his mentor and father figure.
